The Southend Barometer Watershed study was set up in 1992 on the headwaters of Skookum Creek, Heppner Ranger District, Umatilla National Forest. The original objective was to address streamflow and sediment responses to timber harvest. The focus shifted to responses to prescribed fire in the mid 1990’s. The Southend Barometer Watershed consists of two paired watersheds, a control watershed (300 hectares) and a proposed treatment watershed (500 hectares). Prescribed burning has not taken place in the proposed treatment watershed, and data records represent background conditions.
