Wildfire and Water Quality: Processes, Impacts and Challenges

Author / Editor: Mike Stone, Adrian Collins & Martin Thoms
Publication Number: 354
ISBN Number: 978-1-907161-32-2
Year: 2012
Pages: 124

Price: £40.00

There is increasing global concern over the impacts of landscape disturbance by wildfire on a range of aquatic ecosystem services and drinking water supply. Profound and often irreversible changes in river ecosystem function, geomorphology, water quality and water supply occur due to the severity and magnitude of wildfire-related landscape disturbance. Such impacts have important management implications for source water supply and protection at the catchment scale. Themes addressed in this volume include: (1) impacts of wildfire on hillslope hydrology, (2) effects of wildfire on the physical, chemical and biological composition of soils, (3) changes in sediment transport dynamics and yields resulting from wildfires, (4) methodologies used to evaluate the provenance and fate of wildfire impacted sediments and associated contaminants, (5) prediction of hydrological and sediment transport recovery trajectories at the local and catchment scale, (6) impacts of wildfire on aquatic ecology, (7) post-fire sedimentation and water quality impacts in reservoirs, and (8) management actions to reduce the impact of wildfires on river ecosystems.
