Administrative History

In 1936, the Nevada Agricultural Experiment Station published Bulletin No. 141, the relationship between tree-growth and stream runoff in the Truckee River Basin, California-Nevada, by George Hardman and Orvis E. Reil. Using an increment borer, a small section of the tree was removed to be dated, counted, measured and correlated for comparison between tree-growth, precipitation, and stream runoff.

Arrangement

Unarranged.
