Sally Thompson & Katya Rakhmatulina explore how fire affects water movement in the Illilouette Basin

Description

Professor Sally Thompson and CEE PhD student Katya Rakhmatulina study fire and water in Yosemite National Park's Illilouette Basin.

Their findings in the basin provide promising new evidence that the sort of natural fire regime seen in the Illilouette Basin can alter local hydrology in meaningful, largely beneficial ways — including sending more water downstream to end users.
