Abstract : Revegetation success on disturbed sites is closely aligned to abiotic characteristics. Site-specific, microenvironmental conditions such as temperature and precipitation, effect revegetative success. Slope angle and aspect control radiation loads and thus temperature and evaporative demand. Soil characteristics will effect germination and growth of seeded species. The objective of this task is to described the abiotic site conditions for seeded areas on the downstream face of Adobe Dam. These conditions include general mesoclimatic data as well as soil characteristics for specific areas on the dam surface.
