Southwest Wildfire Hydrology & Hazard Workshop Proceedings

From April 3 to 5, approximately 70 people, representing various federal, state, and local agencies, researchers and practitioners, gathered at the University of Arizona’s Biosphere 2, north of Tucson for the 2012 Southwest Wildfire Hydrology and Hazards Workshop. The purpose of the workshop was to: 1) share the most recent research regarding post-fire hydrology and hazard assessments and mitigation and warning systems; and 2) discuss ideas for bridging funding gaps for research and warning system implementation.

Thirty papers presented at the workshop are available from the Arizona Geological Survey document repository here. The files consist mostly of power point presentations and PDFs. I recommend beginning with the first paper (50 pages) on the list (see here) which gives an overview of the proceedings.
