    Description

    Throughout the world fire plays an important role in the management and maintenance of ecosystems. However, if a fire is sufficiently intense, soil can be irreversibly altered and the ability of vegetation, particularly forests, to recover after a fire can be seriously compromised. Because fire is frequently used by land managers to reduce surface fuels, it is important to know if and how soil properties may change as a consequence of the fire-associated soil heat pulse.
