The field work was carried out with assistance from Chris Sherwin, Philip J. Noske and Matt Richardson from the Forest Hydrology Research Group at The University of Melbourne. Valuable information, video recordings and photographs were provided by landowners (Ralph Barraclough and John Knocks), catchment manager, Wayne Tennant and former forest worker, Russ Ritchie. The constructive comments from Ellen Wohl and an anonymous reviewer helped improve the quality of the manuscript. The study was jointly funded by Melbourne Water and the eWater CRC. GIS data layers (fire severity, DEM and EVC) were made available by the Victorian Department of Sustainability and Environment.
