2013/2014 Rim Fire Monitoring Technical Memo

The 2013 Rim Fire burned over 257,000 acres within the Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park, becoming the third largest wildfire to date in California. To help provide an understanding of potential post-fire ecological changes in the Hetch Hetchy Reach of the upper Tuolumne River, the SFPUC has funded annual monitoring of fine sediment, large wood, and riparian vegetation encroachment. Results from the first year of monitoring are now available here and in the UTREP library.
