Short summary
Deforestation is commonly understood to increase and reforestation to reduce flood risk, but scientific evidence at the relevant landscape scale is scarce and contested. A measure of day-to-day flow persistence is defined here. It is proposed as simple performance indicator for watershed health that can respond to changes in climate and land cover quality, quantity and spatial pattern. Data for four watersheds show decrease or increase in flow persistence in degradation and restoration phases.
