Abstract

This paper reports the results of a study on how fire effects water and sediment losses in the Central Spanish Pyrenees where land abandonment results in an increase of the scrubland and fire-affected surfaces. In 1991, 2 plots (controls and burnt) were installed to collect runoff, suspended sediments and solutes. During 1993, another burnt plot was installed. Differences between burnt and control plots were analysed at hourly, daily, monthly and yearly temporal scale. Both burned plots began to recover after the fire. Water and sediment losses from the 2 burnt plots were markedly different
