Establishing Directions in Postfire Debris Flow Science Conference

The science of post-wildfire debris flows has evolved rapidly over the past few decades as wildfires have become more frequent, larger, and more severe, impacting human health and the developed landscape. Post-wildfire debris flow science encompasses a wide variety of fields, including hydrology, geomorphology, engineering, remote sensing, atmospheric science, ecology, and data science. The intention of this workshop is to bring together a diverse set of researchers, practitioners, early-career scientists, and students from these fields to: - Create a collective understanding of the state of the science, - Identify major research and operations hurdles so new ideas can be developed to overcome them, - Build relationships to facilitate cross-disciplinary partnerships and enable rapid knowledge transfer, and - Identify and develop future research goals to improve models and move the science forward.
