Research questions

Research questions

What is the rate and type of erosion in coffee watersheds and how much do trees reduce it?

we propose to assess and model the water balance and sediment yield from plot to watershed

Can AF practices be promoted and rewarded as hydrological services?

Hydropower profitability is limited by sedimentation of reservoirs. The tools here developed could help in the negotiation of hydrological services between coffee producers and hydropower institutes/companies in Costa Rica

Simulation of water balance HBV lumped model

very high infiltration => low runoff

~> low laminar erosion

then: flooding events  non-laminar erosion

Sediment yield sy event 29 06 09 plot to watershed scale

Sediment Yield (SY)Event 29/06/09, plot to watershed scale

Total SY = 564 kg (100%)

(measured at the

outlet catchment)

- SY non-shade = 169 kg (30%)

- SY shade = 51 kg (9% )

SY road+n.lam.= 344 kg (61%)

2/3 of watershed sediment yield comes from non-laminar sources!


Conclusions

Conclusions

We designed an experimental display in a coffe AF system

(andosols, montaneaous) in order to assess and model:

· the water balance partitioning from plot to watershed

· the sediment yield from plot to watershed

A combination of techiques and models allowed to evidence that:

· streamflow was dominated by the base flow (aquifer)

· the infiltration rate was enormous in these conditions (andosols, many roots)

· the laminar erosion was low as compared to the non-laminar erosion


Perspectives

Perspectives

  • to close water balance on one full year at least

  • to continue accumulating sediment yield

  • to assess the influence of tree density and slope on plot erosion and scale up to watershed

  • to explain the origin of non-laminar erosion and see how management can reduce it

  • to validate in other contrasting watershed (other soil, other slope, other tree density...)
