Abstract

This paper examines post-fire erosion response in a sub-alpine environment in south-eastern Australia for a period of 2.2 years. The results indicate that there is a significant difference between the surface level change regimes on the burnt and unburnt hillslopes. Slope position was critical in modifying post-fire erosion response, as it controlled slope angle and the rate of surface cover regrowth. The post-fire hillslope undergoes erosion by direct rain-drop impact and overland flow. As a result surface level change on the unburnt slope was largely influenced by wetting-drying effects rather than sediment transfer by surface flow
