Prescribed fires impact the hydrological cycle in forested catchments because they remove vegetation and modify the amount of evapotranspiration (ET) that occurs. Evapotranspiration is the most important component of the hydrological cycle and perturbations to it can substantially affect the water balance of an ecosystem. However, our understanding of ET responses to disturbance is very limited and this makes post-fire assessment of water balance difficult.
