Student project

This research project is analysing the relationships between bushfires, prescribed fires, soil carbon, forested catchments and water quality. The key questions being addressed include how does fire of different intensities affect the quality of soil carbon in forests, how will a change in soil carbon affect water quality from forested catchments, and whether certain areas or characteristics of catchments affect water quality after bushfires. It will also investigate if the effects of low and high intensity fire on water quality can be predicted.
