Initial hydrologic and geomorphic response following a wildfire in the Colorado Front Range

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study reports on the hydrologic and geomorphic response after a wildfire in a semi-arid, montainous system where the rainfall regime is characterized by short duration, high intensity summer rainfall. The short-term, transient response was measured during the first four years after the wildfire. The process rates are compared to available pre-fire rates for the Colorado Front Range and to rates in the chaparral mountainous system of southern California with a mediterranean semi-arid climate to assess the geomorphic importance of wildfire. These rates can then be utilized to model long-term landscape evolution in steep mountainous areas that are prone to wildfire and subject to intense rainfall
