Abstract

Rivers are essential to life on Earth for draining and transporting water all around the globe. Ecosystems and life in general depend heavily on the flow of water.There are many factors that can affect water flow. Wildfires is one of the most influential factors in water flow (Burton, 2016). Wildfires can lead to increased erosion rates and runoff which may lead to increased suspended sediment and nutrient concentrations in streams which can affect the supply of drinking water(Burton 2016). This brings us to Eaton Canyon with questions of how wildfires, recent droughts, and extreme weather conditions may have affected the river’s conditions. We will compare the location of recent water flows to older water flows to determine how wildfires, climate change, and precipitation rates may have affected the braided water flow path in Eaton Canyon. We hypothesize that most of the recent river flows will be located closest to the Eaton Canyon fall.
