Wildland fire has profound effects on transport of sediment and
organic material from terrestrial to aquatic systems and then downstream.
Topics to be covered in this section include wildfire and the supply of sediment
and wood to stream channels; sediment and wood routing; channel evolution;
debris flow scaling and landslides; effects of fire severity on landslide
occurrence; and sediment supply, routing and fundamental differences between
management and wildfire.
