The project titled ''Changes in Rock Mass Properties After Wildfires'' directed by our department member Prof. Dr. Tolga Görüm on the Turkish side, and Dr. Jan Blahut from the Czech Academy of Sciences on the Czechia side, has been funded by TÜBİTAK - Czech Academy of Sciences (CAS) Bilateral Cooperation Support Programme.
The focus of the project is understanding the short and long-term effects of forest fires on erosional mass loss and debris flows in different slope environments under changing climatic conditions. 
The members of the project team are our faculty member Prof. Dr. Ömer Lütfi Şen from the Department of Climate and Marine Sciences, Bikem Ekberzade and Dr. Aydoğan Avcıoğlu
