Historical Fire Regimes, Water, and Climate in the Foothills

This research project from the Healthy Landscapes Program seeks to understand the historical fire regimes in the foothills, and the relationship to water quality, land use, and climate change.

This project on the historical fire regimes in the foothills, and the relationship to water quality, land use, and climate change builds on the findings of a series of past projects, beginning with the Natural Disturbance Program's 1999 Island Remnants Project. That project found an unexpected number of historical wildfires with very high remnants, challenging long-held assumptions about fire severity.

The Healthy Landscapes Program expanded the scope of that research with this project, which will provide a better understanding of low severity wildfire.

Burning Issues in Alberta's Forests proceedings online

On July 10 & 11, 2013, researchers from the Healthy Landscapes Program's fire history research team gathered together in Hinton to present details of their ongoing research, and to conduct a field tour of significant sites. We have captured the information in short videos, full-length videos (to come), photos and documents.
