Researchers review hydrologic, geomorphic, ecologic, and social conditions in the Willamette River basin through time—including pre-settlement, river development, and contemporary periods—and offer a future vision for consideration.


Water runs through Stawberry Creek, a small mountain creek with bolders and edged with trees.
Researchers sampled 16 coastal watersheds in Oregon for current-use water-borne herbicides commonly used in forestland vegetation management. Models predicted south coast sites have higher than average herbicide concentrations, which aligns with findings.

Researchers investigate the timescale it takes a salt marsh to reestablish in Netarts Bay, Oregon, following the 1700 earthquake.
Lush plants grow in water in an area that was restored in the Five Mile Bell project. The area is flanked by trees.
This article is on Stage 0 rehabilitation practices and presents an initial synthesis of results that provide a foundation for understanding the effects of this approach on river rehabilitation.
