[Webinar] Fuel Treatments as a Strategy to Mitigate Climate Impacts on Wildfire, Vegetation, and Water on the Kaibab Plateau, Arizona

Date: May 30, 2017
Time: 12-1 pm MDT  / 11 am -12 pm PDT
Presenters: William T. Flatley, University of Central Arkansas and Frances C. O’Donnell, Auburn University
Coauthors: Peter Z. Fulé and Abraham E. Springer, Northern Arizona University

Climate change and wildfire are interacting to drive vegetation change and potentially reduce water quantity and quality in the southwestern US. Fuel treatments are a management approach that could mitigate some of these negative outcomes. We combined spatially-explicit vegetation and fire modeling (LANDIS-II) with statistical water and sediment yield models for a large forested landscape on the Kaibab Plateau in northern Arizona, USA. Our objective was to assess the impacts of climate change and fuel treatment on the future fire regime, forest vegetation, and watershed outputs.
