New paper co-authored by ERG researchers published in Science of the Total Environment

A new paper in Science of the Total Environment co-authored by Ecohydrology Research Group members Dr. Fereidoun Rezanezhad and Dr. Colin McCarter presents the understanding of how wildfires can alter the flux and storage of water within a peat plateau, and how these hydrological changes in addition to other fire-induced physical changes affect the flux of water and solute from the plateau to downslope ecosystems.
