River Jup basin after fire

Photo submitted by María Burguet, a PhD student at the Institute for Sustainable Agriculture at Córdoba (IAS-CSIC, Spain). His research interests include the sources of sediment, runoff and carbon in Andalusian olive grove at different scales and under different agricultural managements.
This photo was taken shortly after the fire that occurred in the area of Carcaixent-Alzira-La Valldigna (Valencia, Spain) in 2006: “I think it reflects very well the main factors that shape the current Mediterranean landscape: wildfires, soil erosion and the intense ‘re-agriculturization’ that takes place anywhere and at any price. “
