Ecogeomorphology: Grand Canyon 2005

High viewpoint between rocky mountains

Large, multipurpose dams impact the integrity of downstream aquatic and riparian ecosystems. An international effort is underway to evaluate how pulse flow releases might be used as a tool in restoration. An experimental release from Glen Canyon Dam in November of 2004 created a unique opportunity to examine the geomorphic and ecologic response of releases on the health of Grand Canyon ecosystems.
