I will seek to understand how changes in land cover impact sedimentation levels in the Natchaug River watershed using RIOS and inVEST, two software programs developed by the Nature Conservancy for modeling ecosystems services. This is the final part of a research project on behalf of the Quiet Corner Initiative for the Yale School Forests, in order to understand how land use change is affecting water quality in the Natchaug River watershed.
