FEDMAP Project Summary
Wildfire-Related Debris Flow and Landslide Hazards
To understand how and why wildfires can cause landslides.
This project is studying the distribution, magnitude, and triggering processes for debris flows and landslides that occur in mountainous terrain after major wildfires. Understanding of these physical processes can be used to predict these hazardous events and mitigate their effects on people, property, and natural resources.
