Abstract

Erosion control strategies must be established in the weeks following a forest fire to reduce fire impacts during the critical phase. The aim of this paper is to present a method used to define the location of log erosion barrages (LEBs), log debris dams (LDDs) and grass filter strips in the weeks following a major forest fire in southeast France during the summer of 2003. The method is based, firstly, on a simple soil erosion model that identifies critical erosion zones, and secondly, on a more detailed analysis of high risk slopes according to their potential impact on the main river channel, the value of the soil ressource to be protected, the availability of pine logs, and accessibility to the site
