Effects of Soil Burn Temperature and Organic Content on Post-wildfire Debris Flow Mobility
This is an extended abstract for 3rd JTC1 Workshop on Impact of Global Changes on Landslide Hazard and Risk, and it has been used as the key reference in our new funding proposal.
This extended abstract shows experimental procedure and some preliminary results. Test results show that the burnt severity and organic content has a significant effect on the rheology of post-fire debris flow. Findings from this study are useful for advancing the knowledge base to select an appropriate rheological model to conduct hazard assessments of debris flow in burnt watersheds.
