As drought conditions persist in California (CA), wildfires have increased in frequency and severity. Fire suppression and rural development has resulted in large, infrequent and high intensity wildfires in southern CA, whereas in northern Baja, small, frequent, and low intensity burns dominate the landscape. This stark difference provides a unique opportunity understand how wildfire regime controls erosional and hydrologic processes.
