Modeling effects of wildfire and fire retardant on nutrients downstream in a watershed scale
The goal of this project will be to better understand the effects of wildfire and fire retardants on soil nutrients and how wildfires impact the export of nutrients from burned landscapes. Additionally this project will help identify the effects of fire retardant on land and water quality and how to describe and simulate the effects of wildfire and fire retardants on soil nutrients and water quality.
Need and Benefit
Effects of wild fire and fire retardant on downstream nutrient and water quality needs to be understand and evaluated. At present there is no decision support tool available to perform analysis of this problem. This project addresses this issue.
