"Post-fire hydrologic analysis: A tale of two severities" suggests that a “tactical pause” is required to re-evaluate the concepts of fire/burn severity, with important implications for fire management and post-fire hydrological modelling. The paper highlights the importance of distinguishing between vegetation burn severity and soil burn severity when assessing post-fire hydrologic impacts, highlighting the need for a more nuanced approach. It also discusses the potential synergistic future of remote sensing with in-situ severity metrics, suggesting that combining these data sources could lead to more accurate and reliable predictions. We look forward to initiating a broader discussion on post-fire hydrologic analysis. Your discussion and research papers are welcome! The paper is free to view for six months.

A key new HSJ review paper.
We are delighted to feature the publication of a particularly innovative and somewhat controversial HSJ paper by former Editor-in-Chief Demetris Koutsoyiannis and Christos Vournas. The article, titled “Revisiting the greenhouse effect—a hydrological perspective”, is written in Demetris Koutsoyiannis's signature style, combining humour with a hydrological perspective on a topical issue. The study challenges conventional thinking on the greenhouse effect and offers a new perspective that is sure to stimulate scientific discussion: old formulae for calculating the greenhouse effect are still accurate, the authors claim, even with more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
