Description:Soil and trees within Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GRSM) play a significant role in the uptake and processing of acidic components deposited upon the landscape. The Chimney Tops 2 (CT2) fire burned 11,000 acres of park property, including many trees and groundcover, which are no longer present in the ecosystem. The effects of such fires on the soils and nearby stream chemistry are relatively unknown within GRSM. The purposes of this effort are to document the changes in soil and stream chemistry observed in various burn severities due to the Chimney Tops 2 fire.
