New research to map post-fire erosion to support forest management


The Commission has partnered with researchers at Jacobs to develop a method that will map post-fire erosion. This will improve our understanding of how future wildfires impact water quality and provide options to reduce those impacts.

The project will address knowledge gaps of how sediment is transferred to waterways after wildfires. The project will provide options to the Coastal IFOA for improved forest management to protect waterway health in a changing climate.
