How wildfires disturb the land and affect water flows – TRU Newsroom

How wildfires disturb the land and affect water flows – TRU Newsroom

July 12, 2019 at 10:57 am  Education, Kamloops, News

Dr. Thomas Pypker is an associate professor in the Faculty of Science who is studying the after-effects of wildfires, particularly as they impact land disturbance and water flows.

His work focuses on how disturbance affects biophysical processes of managed ecosystems at scales ranging from the leaf to whole watersheds. Nationally and internationally, his work focuses on how management and climate change affects biophysical processes in a variety of ecosystems that range from Canada’s sub-boreal forests and grasslands, northern Michigan’s wetlands, mountain ecosystems in Oregon, Washington and Colorado, to managed plantations in Brazil, Argentina, Mexico and Iran

Ultimately, the goal of his work is to provide insight into how management or climate change will affect the hydrology, stability and productivity of the Earth’s ecosystems.
