Abstract

Analyses of data collected from two small basins in northern Pennsylvania during the period May 1954-September 1960 indicated a general relationship between changes in land use and land treatment and changes in suspended-sediment discharge from the basins. Extensive land use and land-treatment changes have taken place in the 12.2 square-mile Corey Creek study basin while such changes in the 10.2 square-mile Elk Run basin, which is adjacent to the northeast, have been relatively slight. Elk Run basin, which is topographically and hydrologically similar to Corey Creek basin, was used as an external control for the Corey Creek basin study.
