USDA Southwest Climate Hub 

February 2018

First Friday All Climate Change Talks (FFACCTs) 

Hosted by the USDA Forest Service, Research and Development Deputy Area, in cooperation with the USDA Climate Hubs

Presentation:  After Fire: A Toolkit for the Southwest  

The recently developed After Fire Toolkit serves as a resource for those interested in understanding the methods available to assess and mitigate potential risks associated with post-fire events, including flooding, debris flows, and sedimentation. The online toolkit addresses needs identified by managers and stakeholders during workshops hosted by the USFS, the Nature Conservancy, University of Arizona, Bureau of Reclamation, and others to focus on strategies for diminishing post-fire effects and restoring newly burned landscapes. Friggens and Driscoll will introduce the project and discuss the research, methods, and tools available on the site for measuring and reducing risks after fire.
