Wildfires Can Burn Hot Without Ruining Soil
2013-04-24 08:52:48

American Geophysical Union When scientists torched an entire 22-acre watershed in Portugal in a recent experiment, their research yielded a counterintuitive result: Large, hot fires do not necessarily beget hot, scorched soil. It´s well known that wildfires can leave surface soil burned and barren, which increases the risk of erosion and hinders a landscape´s ability to recover. But the scientists´ fiery test found that the hotter the fire–and the denser the...
