The overall objective of this project is to combine several techniques to quantify erosion, correlating the results with the evolution of the physiological state of the vegetation, which is determined by the NDVI through camera attached to a UAV and other plant-level techniques. This project aims to investigate the role of geomorphological processes according to the condition and severity of forest fire and post-fire management performed. From here, the type of ecological patterns, states of habitat and ecological control geomorphological processes and their associated forms will arise, and vice versa.
Therefore, we have selected three drainage microcatchments (ie, <2 ha) representing land use, presence of traditional soil conservation structures and dynamics of forest fires as well as post-fire management implemented. In addition, a control microcatchment unaffected by any forest fire but representative land use. All within the sa Font de la Vila catchment, subject of continuous monitoring of the flow of water and sediment post-fire.
