Snowmelt and rainfall runoff in burned and unburned catchments at the intermittent-persistent snow transition, Colorado Front Range
Winter snowmelt and summer monsoonal rains are the dominant sources for streamflow in the Colorado Front Range, and wildfire can greatly affect the hydrologic regime through which these inputs are delivered to the stream. However, the specific changes to the hydrologic processes that drive runoff production made by wildfire are not clearly understood. This research examines how wildfire affects the timing and magnitude of runoff production from snowmelt and rainfall by comparing four catchments in and near the High Park Fire area, two burned and two unburned, at the intermittent-persistent ...
