Strawberry Creek Cross-Section Report

Abstract: 

This report is part of an on-going Strawberry Creek watershed monitoring program at the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley).  It describes cross-sectional elevation measurements taken in early 1994 at fifteen locations on the UC Berkeley campus and compares these elevations to 1990 measurements (Huse & Gonzalez, 1990).  The purpose of such comparison is to determine the effectiveness of past erosion control measures and to provide the University with additional information needed for prioritizing current erosion control and habitat restoration efforts.  This study is a follow-up to erosion studies performed in 1988, 1990, and 1991 as part of the Strawberry Creek Restoration Program (a program initiated in 1987 by the UC Berkeley to restore the habitat quality and beneficial uses of Strawberry Creek that had been degraded from the urban development of the watershed).  The primary objective of this study is to provide reliable baseline data for future long-term erosion and habitat monitoring.
