The proposed research effort will evaluate systematic changes in the Gwynns Falls Watershed from 1987 to present. Specifically, urbanization impacts to physical conditions and processes and resulting impacts to biotic integrity will be assessed. Linkages among urbanization process, geomorphic processes, physical characteristics, and biotic stream changes will be explored. Finally, indicator variables will be evaluated to determine reliability and predictability.
