Depositional characteristics and sediment availability resulting from the post-Schultz Fire floods of 2010


Koestner, Karen A.; Carroll, Mike D.; Neary, Daniel G.; Koestner, Peter E.; Youberg, Ann. 2011. Depositional characteristics and sediment availability resulting from the post-Schultz Fire floods of 2010. Paper presented at the 24th Annual Symposium of the Arizona Hydrological Society; Watersheds near and far: Response to changes in climate and landscape; September 18-20, 2010; Flagstaff, AZ. 5 p.

Wildfire is a major land management concern due to direct impacts of fire on forest resources, and potentially negative effects on landscape processes by increasing rates of runoff, erosion, downstream sedimentation, and overall site degradation (DeBano et al. 1998, Neary et al. 2005, Robichaud et al. 2010). In the United States the number of fires has been increasing over the last decade, as have fire size and severity (National Interagency Fire Center 2009).
