Impacts of wildfires on mountainous landscapes include modifications to hydraulic and geotechnical properties of soils [1,2]. These changes may influence both hydrologic and sedimentologic response of burned watersheds to intense rainfall, increasing the likelihood of overland flow and soil erosion than in areas that are unburned [3]. Enhanced rainfall-induced runoff and sediment transport can lead to relevant landscape degradation, as well as to the triggering of rapid debris and sediment-laden flows [4,5] which may represent a substantial hazard for people and infrastructures located downstream [6].
