EPSP Connects Special Event: A Community Discussion of Typical Wildfire Effects on Earth Surface Processes
Wildfires have been affecting critical watersheds throughout the world this year, beginning with the widespread fires throughout Australia in early 2020, up to the present with large fires affecting much of the Western U.S. Unlike a river or a glacier, wildfire is not the originator of landscape change. Rather, wildfire nucleates a series of secondary processes from increased flooding and debris flows to increased rainsplash that result in overall landscape reorganization. Many researchers studying earth surface processes may be wondering how wildfires will influence the hydrologic and geomorphic processes at their study sites. We have therefore convened a panel to have a community discussion about the how fire affects soils and hydrology. This panel will discuss how wildland fires influence earth surface processes and the overall context of fires in earth history. The goal is to help interested researchers to be armed with knowledge that they might use to reframe research in recently burned research areas.
