Sagebrush (Artemisia spp.) ecosystems occupy more than million acres of the western United States. Big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) communities are among the most widespread of sagebrush communities. The land area historically occupied by sagebrush has been reduced by nearly half due to a variety of causes, including human development, agriculture.

Hydrologic and hydraulic aspects of planning and design of a bridge is equally important in deciding its location, waterway, afflux, scour, hydraulic forces, river training measures etc. [1].

DISTRIBUTION Wyoming big sagebrush and basin big sagebrush steppe and shrubland communities are widely distributed throughout the West, and occur mostly in the Intermountain West (the region bounded by the Cascade Range, Sierra Nevada, and Arizona/New Mexico mountains to the west and the front ranges of the Rocky Mountains to the east), but they extend east into the Northwestern Great.

Rangelands, due to their large expanse, are responsible for processing a significant portion of freshwater in the western United States. Rangeland managers are in need of methods to quantify hydrologic processes and scientifically based decision tools to effectively manage water resources under growing populations and a changing climate.

The ecological site (ES) concept Cited by: 6. A hydrologic study focuses on our complex water systems, and just how much a catchment is retaining and storing water on a land surface. For example, that means whether or not a catch basin on site is effectively working to siphon water when it rains, or whether a property is dangerously close to a flood risk.
