Frequency, magnitude and connectivity of post-wildfire rainfall-runoff and sediment transport, The
Wildfire increases the likelihood of runoff, erosion, and downstream sedimentation in many of the watersheds that supply water for communities across the western U.S. The goal of this research was to examine the complex interactions between fire, rainfall and landscape properties (e.g., burn severity, topography) across scales from hillslopes to watersheds. The research combines both regional data analysis and field monitoring to examine the frequency, magnitude and connectivity of post-fire rainfall-runoff events and associated sediment delivery. In the first part of this study (chapter 2), the ...
