Description
Scope/Content: Abstract: This document details a comprehensive science-based understanding of gravel augmentation, dam removal, and channel-floodplain redesign as restoration tools within the framework of restoration 'manuals.' These three manuals (one for each of the three restoration practices) integrate results from laboratory experiments from this study with theoretical analysis, numerical modeling, and field case studies to produce scientifically-based guidelines for assessing, implementing, and predicting the in-channel response of these common restoration strategies. The manuals are intended for use by restoration practitioners and managers. The manuals have been peer-reviewed by the California Department of Fish and Game and members of the project's Scientific Advisory Panel. Abbreviated revisions of these manuals will be submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.
