Summary: 

We study a system of classification of the severity of fire on soil using visual cues, verifying the effectiveness of this system based on the changes of chemical, microbiological and enzymatic properties of the soil, associated with different levels of severity of the fire. We also tried control treatments of post-fire erosion.
