Post-fire erosion response and recovery, High Park Fire, Colorado
Wildfires along the Colorado Front Range are increasing in extent, severity and frequency, and a better understanding of post-fire erosion processes is needed to manage burned lands. The objectives of this study were to: 1) document post-fire sediment production after the 2012 High Park Fire burn area, Colorado, 2) determine how sediment production relates to fire, rainfall, surface cover, soil and topographic characteristics, 3) model sediment yield at the study swales using the RUSLE and ERMiT erosion models and a site-specific multivariate regression (SSMR) model developed from the field ...
