USGS New Mexico Debris Flow Hazard Studies

The USGS conducted debris flow hazard studies following the Whitewater-Baldy, Las Conchas and Track fires.

Want to learn more about post-wildfire flooding? U.S Geological Survey has produced three reports modeling post-fire debris flows. The reports include information such as the areas of the highest probability of the largest debris flows during flooding some recent New Mexico wildfires. You can see the completed reports at the links below. Also, USGS may help communities before or after a wildfire, including early warning rain and stream gauges and debris-flow modeling.
