Description: The Angel Fire of September, 1987 caused extensive damage to second growth forest in the south fork drainage of Cow Creek, 55 km northeast of Grant's Pass, Oregon, USA. The fire was characterized by a high-intensity burn over areas of steep topography. The areal distribution of soil hydraulic properties in a small, tributary watershed following high-intensity wildfire is examined using tests of infiltration capacity, saturated hydraulic conductivity, and soil moisture characteristics. Also, measures of soil water-repellency are determined. Soil hydraulic properties are evaluated for logged and forested slopes up to 30 degrees. Results indicate a relatively small effect of high-intensity wildfire on the generation of water-repellent soils and the hydrologic response of this watershed.
