Natalie S. Wagenbrenner
I participate in field and laboratory-scale research to assess the impacts of forest access and wild fire on soil erosion and water quality.� Recent research has involved hydrologic and sediment impact assessments of forest road decommissioning projects, evaluation of Burned Area Emergency Rehabilitation (BAER) road treatments, and estimation of forest road hydrologic parameters for erosion modeling.� I am also involved with research investigating wind erosion processes and mitigation techniques in post-fire and disturbed environments.
