Burned Watersheds - Debris Deposition After Cerro Grande Fire
Channels draining burned areas have zones of erosion and zones of deposition. This deposition was downstream from an erosion zone after the Cerro Grande Fire near Los Alamos, NM. The peeled bark indicates the highest level of water and debris during a flash flood. Sediment is coarse sand and gravel. The view is downstream and the blue backpack is about 1-meter tall.
