Abstract Study region Jarrah forest in south west Australia. Study focus The hydrological response to bauxite mining in the jarrah forest could differ from other land uses such as timber harvesting or clearing for agriculture, since mining involves excavation of the upper regolith in addition to changes in forest cover due to clearing and subsequent rehabilitation. Three catchments, one subject to mining, a second subject to an intensive forest thinning treatment and an untreated control were monitored for streamflow, rainfall, groundwater and leaf area index over a 36-year period. New hydrological insights for the region Mining caused a peak streamflow response...
