27 Jul 2022 Press release: New model predicts landslides along wildfire burn scars – an early warning system for high-risk areas

A wildfire followed by an intense rainstorm is often a recipe for disaster. Without vegetation to cushion rainfall, water runoff can turn into a fast-moving, highly destructive landslide, called a "debris flow", which often has the power to wipe out cars, homes and highways – sometimes resulting in casualties. Northwestern University researchers have expanded a physics-based numerical model to investigate and predict areas susceptible to debris flows. This model could eventually be used in an early warning system for people living in high-risk areas, enabling them to evacuate before it's too late. Read more.
