Creek Post-Fire BAER Phase II Soil Burn Severity Map Released

In response to the Creek Fire expansive continued growth after the Forest Service Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team’s initial Phase I assessment of soil burn severity (SBS), a BAER team assessed the new growth areas that are depicted on the Phase II SBS Map in bright pink perimeter lines.  During the BAER assessment of Phase I, 306,659 acres were analyzed.  For Phase II, the BAER team assessed and analyzed an additional 44,430 acres.  Soil Burn Severity levels are Unburned/Very Low, Low, Moderate, and High. The map shows that in the Creek Phase II burned area, the SBS levels are unburned/very low (42%) or low (35%) soil burn severity, while 22% sustained a moderate soil burn severity, and less than 1% burned at high soil burn severity.  For information about the Creek Phase I SBS findings, go to InciWeb at: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/article/7221/57890/.
