Hydrologic and hydraulic response to wildfires in the upper Cache la Poudre watershed using a SWAT and HEC-RAS model cascade
The enhanced possibility of catastrophic wildfires in the western USA and other regions around the world has increased the need to evaluate the effects of wildfire on the hydrology of watersheds and the hydraulic behavior of rivers. Understanding the effects of wildfires is vital in water-resources management and for public safety especially in regions where communities depend on surface water supply. Similarly, areas adjacent to river systems may be at risk of increased flooding due to wildfires in their upstream watersheds. Effects of wildfires on hydrologic fluxes in watersheds and rivers ...
