Large-scale, long-term estimates of stream length impacted by wildfire for the western US

Grady Ball, Peter Regier, Ricardo González-Pinzón & David Van Horn
Wildfires are increasing globally in frequency, severity, and extent, but their impact on aquatic ecosystems, and the resources they provide, remains unclear. Here, we combine remote sensing of burn perimeter and severity, in-situ water quality monitoring, and longitudinal modeling to create the first large-scale, long-term estimates of stream length impacted by wildfire for the western US. We found that wildfires directly impacted ~6% of the total stream length between 1984 and 2014, increasing at a...
