Database of post-wildfire floods and debris flows

March 4, 2024

This database contains information on peak flows (floods, hyperconcentrated flows, and debris flows) after wildfire. Data were collected from the scientific literature and the U.S. Geological Survey National Water Information System. These data provide a foundation to assess the upper limits of post-wildfire floods that imperil human lives, infrastructure, and water supplies.

Literature citations for studies that the data were sourced from are contained in the file "bibliographyv2.rtf".
