Into the Temperate Rainforest, Land of Large Woody Debris

This is Matt Clark's vegetation data.

The image below shows the elevations of the Queets Basin. The rivers are from the USGS 1:100,000 series DLG files. Note that the calculated basin boundary differs slightly from the actual boundary south of the mouth.

On second thought, let's forgot the Clearwater River tributary, and use a "mouth" further upstream. Now let's calculate the amount of steady-state rainfall necessary for soil saturation and for soil instability

We also have additional information for the Matheny Creek tributary.
