[1] Sediment flux from hillslopes to channels commonly increases following wildfires, with implications for the carbon cycle, river habitats, and debris‐flow hazards. Although much of this material is transported via dry ravel, existing ravel models are not applicable to hillslopes with gradients greater than the angle of repose, which can constitute the majority of mountainous terrain. To fill this knowledge gap, we develop a continuity model for sediment storage by vegetation dams on steep… CONTINUE READING
