Titre : ARS Support to National Burned Area Emergency Response Agencies Through Use of the Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment (Agwa) Tool

Identification : 2022-13610-011-09

Pays : Etats Unis

Durée : Start Date : Aug 01, 2012 End Date : Dec 31, 2016

Objectif  : The objective of this project is to quantitatively link burn severity with existing watershed scale hydrology and erosion models to assess risk to aquatic resources and downstream communities.

Descriptif
The research and analysis will identify : 1) what parts of the burned landscape is most susceptible to post-fire runoff, 2) what are the expected inputs to water bodies from different burn severities given associated landscape characteristics, and 3) what are potential impacts to aquatic resources and downstream communities from those impacts ? The project will also provide technical support to BAER teams completing burned area assessments during the fire season and off-season training for appropriate GIS and hydrology personnel in the operation of the AGWA model. The support will also include on-site or remote support to the National BAER Teams during the assessment phase of Burned Area Emergency Response.
