Altered mixed-severity fire regime has homogenised montane forests of Jasper National Park 
Raphaël D. Chavardès and Lori D. Daniels

Dendrochronological data from 29 montane sites in Jasper National Park provided evidence of a mixed-severity fire regime. Historical fires leaving scars or even-aged cohorts burned between 1646 and 1905. In the absence of fires after 1905, forests have matured simultaneously, homogenising the landscape. Proactive management to counter fire suppression effects is justified.

Repeatability of free-burning fire experiments using heterogeneous forest fuel beds in a combustion wind tunnel 
Joshua J. Mulvaney, Andrew L. Sullivan, Geoffrey J. Cary and Glenys R. Bishop

This study explores the implications of using heterogeneous fuel beds in combustion wind tunnel experiments. The overall variability in rate of spread was low in comparison to the effects of the experimental treatments, so subsequent experiments using heterogeneous fuel will not require large numbers of replicates to detect effects of treatments.

How drought-induced forest die-off alters microclimate and increases fuel loadings and fire potentials 
Katinka X. Ruthrof, Joseph B. Fontaine, George Matusick, David D. Breshears, Darin J. Law, Sarah Powell and Giles Hardy

Drought-induced forest die-offs are expected to change fuels and microclimate and likely influence fire behaviour. Fuel loading and microclimate measurements following die-off in south-western Australia showed that die-off plots had 20% higher quantities of 1-h fuels and elevated temperature and wind, which when combined, predicted a 30% higher rate of fire spread.

Global fire size distribution: from power law to log-normal 
Stijn Hantson, Salvador Pueyo and Emilio Chuvieco

Fire size distribution is expected to follow a power-law distribution. Here, we show that instead, log-normal emerges as a suitable option to fit fire size distribution, with only two out of eight areas where fire size distribution can be adequately described by a power law.

Regional aspects of modelling burned areas in Europe 
Andrey Krasovskii, Nikolay Khabarov, Mirco Migliavacca, Florian Kraxner and Michael Obersteiner

This paper presents a series of improvements to the quantitative modelling of burned areas in Europe under historical climate. Our analysis is carried out for 2000–2008 for 17 European countries. The annual burned areas modelled by an improved version of the Standalone Fire Model (SFM) are in good agreement with historical observations.

Can pore-clogging by ash explain post-fire runoff? 
Cathelijne R. Stoof, Anouk I. Gevaert, Christine Baver, Bahareh Hassanpour, Verónica L. Morales, Wei Zhang, Deborah Martin, Shree K. Giri and Tammo S. Steenhuis

Clogging of soil pores by ash is often named as a factor causing increased surface runoff after fires, yet evidence for this is lacking. Using infiltration experiments with microscope observations, and analysis of surface charge and hydraulic conductivity, we were unable to provide this evidence using pure sands. This suggests that pore-clogging by ash is unlikely to be responsible for post-fire runoff from sands.

Lack of soil seedbank change with time since fire: relevance to seed supply after prescribed burns 
Matthew P. Chick, Janet S. Cohn, Craig R. Nitschke and Alan York

Environmental variability, geographic variability and time since disturbance influence plant diversity in soil seedbanks. Knowledge around the relative importance of each of these factors is lacking. This research examined the influence of environmental, geographical and temporal variability on species richness and composition in the soil seedbank within a fire-prone heathy-woodland.

Too much, too soon? A review of the effects of increasing wildfire frequency on tree mortality and regeneration in temperate eucalypt forests 
Thomas A. Fairman, Craig R. Nitschke and Lauren T. Bennett

We use south-eastern Australia as a case study to review effects of increasingly frequent and severe wildfires on tree mortality and regeneration in temperate eucalypt forests. We propose conceptual models to articulate these changes and highlight knowledge gaps in our understanding of alternative stable states in these forests.

Structure-level fuel load assessment in the wildland–urban interface: a fusion of airborne laser scanning and spectral remote-sensing methodologies 
Nicholas S. Skowronski, Scott Haag, Jim Trimble, Kenneth L. Clark, Michael R. Gallagher and Richard G. Lathrop

We used remote sensing data and analysis techniques to characterise fuel hazard in the wildland–urban interface at the resolution of individual structures. Our results indicate that this method can produce consistent estimates of canopy fuel loading across landscapes that can be associated with individual structures or parcels. The application of the work here could inform both strategic fire management decisions and broader, policy-level analysis.

Is aridity a high-order control on the hydro–geomorphic response of burned landscapes? 
Gary J. Sheridan, Petter Nyman, Christoph Langhans, Jane Cawson, Philip J. Noske, Akiko Oono, Rene Van der Sant and Patrick N. J. Lane

The runoff and sediment generation potential of fire-affected soils is a critical factor in determining the hydro–geomorphic response of burned landscapes. Aridity is a control on soil development, and here we show it is also a strong predictor of post-fire surface runoff generation and high-magnitude erosion processes such as debris flows.

Risk assessment of post-wildfire hydrological response in semiarid basins: the effects of varying rainfall representations in the KINEROS2/AGWA model 
Gabriel Sidman, D. Phillip Guertin, David C. Goodrich, Carl L. Unkrich and I. Shea Burns

The KINEROS2/AGWA model was used to compare several representations of post-fire rainfall events. Results indicated that radar depictions produced more accurate absolute runoff values than design storm depictions. However, risk assessment predictions of relative change between pre- and post-fire scenarios did not vary greatly between rainfall depictions.

Structural and functional connectivity as a driver of hillslope erosion following disturbance 
C. Jason Williams, Frederick B. Pierson, Peter R. Robichaud, Osama Z. Al-Hamdan, Jan Boll and Eva K. Strand

This study quantifies runoff and erosion across point to hillslope scales and evaluates connectivity of runoff and erosion processes for fragmented and burnt landscapes. The results clearly demonstrate hillslope hydrologic response is governed by water input and the connectivity of surface susceptibility, sediment availability, and runoff and erosion processes.

Toward an integrated system for fire, smoke and air quality simulations 
Adam K. Kochanski, Mary Ann Jenkins, Kara Yedinak, Jan Mandel, Jonathan Beezley and Brian Lamb

This study presents and tests an integrated wildfire smoke prediction system formed by coupling WRF-Sfire, a weather research forecast system plus surface fire behaviour model, with the chemical transport model WRF-Chem. The coupled WRF-Sfire-Chem aims to predict pyro-plume development, and smoke dispersion and its air quality impacts, by comprehensively modelling fire spread, heat release during flaming combustion, fire emissions and fire plume rise, as well as downwind smoke dispersion and associated chemistry.

A coupled modelling approach to assess the effect of fuel treatments on post-wildfire runoff and erosion 
Gabriel Sidman, D. Phillip Guertin, David C. Goodrich, David Thoma, Donald Falk and I. Shea Burns

Assessing the effectiveness of fuel treatments on reducing post-fire hydrologic response is an important challenge in fire management. We linked fuel treatment, wildfire and hydrological models spatially to measure the effects of fuel treatments on post-fire runoff and erosion in two case studies on National Park Service lands.

Post-wildfire debris flows in southern British Columbia, Canada 
Peter Jordan

Post-wildfire debris flows have occurred as a result of several severe wildfires in the southern interior of British Columbia since 2003. Such events can present a significant hazard to public safety and infrastructure below burned areas. Debris flows have been triggered by spring snowmelt, high-intensity summer rain and long-duration fall rain.

Relations between soil hydraulic properties and burn severity 
John A. Moody, Brian A. Ebel, Petter Nyman, Deborah A. Martin, Cathelijne Stoof and Randy McKinley

Remote sensing is being widely used to detect landscape changes caused by wildfire and to provide detailed information for models. Our results show that remote sensing measures of these changes can be related to changes in soil properties that affect runoff. These relations will improve predictions of catastrophic floods from burned areas.

Jukka Miettinen , Yosio E. Shimabukuro , René Beuchle , Rosana C. Grecchi , Marcela Velasco Gomez , Dario Simonetti and Frédéric Achard
pp. 129-136

We analyse the extent of fire-induced forest degradation in Mato Grosso State, Brazil, in 2000, 2005 and 2010. The largest extent of fire-induced forest degradation is recorded in 2010, in a year with less severe fire season than 2005, potentially indicating increase in fire susceptibility of Amazonian forests.

Veiko Lehsten , Almut Arneth , Allan Spessa , Kirsten Thonicke and Aristides Moustakas
pp. 137-146

A dynamic vegetation model is used to assess the effect of fire on tree:grass ratios and the African savanna biome distribution. High fire frequencies were found to maintain tree–grass coexistence under mesic conditions (700–900 mm mean annual precipitation) and the incorporation of fire substantially improved continental simulations of biomes.

Bing Lu , Yuhong He and Alexander Tong
pp. 147-157

Wildfire plays a vital role in grassland ecosystems. Satellite images with a high spatial and temporal coverage offer an effective tool for investigating grassland fires. This study used Landsat imagery that was available publicly to investigate a wildfire disturbance in the Grasslands National Park, Canada and provided insights for fire management in the grasslands.

Matthew P. Thompson , Patrick Freeborn , Jon D. Rieck , David E. Calkin , Julie W. Gilbertson-Day , Mark A. Cochrane and Michael S. Hand
pp. 167-181

We present a case study of the Las Conchas Fire (2011), examining how previously burned areas may have influenced fire outcomes. Our analyses quantify fire line effectiveness and avoided exposure, and suggest in particular that the Cerro Grande Fire (2000) helped mitigate fire behaviour and enhance suppression effectiveness.

pp. 182-190

We evaluated the extent to which previous wildland fire inhibits the ignition and spread of subsequent fire in four large study areas in the western US. Results indicate that wildland fire limits subsequent fire occurrence in all study areas. The longevity of this effect, however, varies among study areas.

pp. 200-212

A simulation-based framework was used to assess the effect of future fuels, weather and ignitions on burn probability in the Thompson–Okanagan region, British Columbia. Changes in potential vegetation may offset the effect of increases in the number of fire ignitions and fire weather severity on burn probability in this region.

pp. 213-223

We assessed the impact of low-intensity surface fires in natural sub-arctic stands. Our results indicate long-lasting fire effects on soil CO2 efflux, litter decomposition, soil fungal and microbial biomass, and extracellular enzyme activities. These values were lowest soon after fire and recovered within 40 to 60 years following the fire disturbance.

pp. 242-248

We highlight via a laboratory experiment the potential of repeated burns to reduce black carbon residence times. Our results indicate that for black carbon that remains in situ to be most effective as a net carbon sink, it must be incorporated deep into the organic layer or into the mineral soil matrix before subsequent burning.

We present a new methodology that allowed modelling the amount and spatial distribution of wildfire ash (t ha-1) in a burnt south-east Australian eucalypt forest. This tool can be applied in the region and adapted for use elsewhere, to inform post-fire land management for mitigating the effects of ash, such as debris flows or water contamination.
