Spatial and temporal channel changes across the watershed scale following wildfire and floods
Fires and floods are important drivers of geomorphic change. The hydrologic and sedimentologic effects of fires have been relatively well studied at the hillslope scale, but we still lack the ability to accurately quantify and predict post-fire flooding and geomorphic changes at larger scales. This lack of understanding stems primarily from two reasons. First, there is generally limited availability of repeat high-resolution topography following fires, and this limits our ability to quantify and explain changes throughout a given channel network. Second and more fundamentally, one cannot simply ...
