A new study looked at how drought and an associate stressor, wildfire, influenced stream flow permanence and thermal regimes in a Great Basin stream network. Researchers quantified these responses by collecting information with a spatially extensive network of data loggers. To understand the effects of wildfire specifically, they used data from 4 additional sites that were installed prior to a 2012 fire that burned nearly the entire watershed.
