Research and Publications Database

The NRFSN research and publications database leads users to regionally relevant fire science. There are more than 2,900 documents, which have been carefully categorized by the NRFSN to highlight topics and ecosystems important in the Northern Rockies Region. Categorized resources include records from the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP), Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES), and Fire Effects Information System (FEIS).

Note: Additional Northern Rockies fire research is available from our Webinar & Video Archive.

Hints: By default, the Search Terms box reads and searches for terms as if there were AND operators between them. To search for one or more terms, use the OR operator. Use quotation marks around phrases or to search for exact terms. To maximize the search function, use the Search Terms box for other information (e.g. author(s), date, species of interest, additional fire topics) together with the topic, ecosystem, and/or resource type terms from the lists. Additional information is available in our documents on topics, ecosystems, and types.

LANDFIRE produces a comprehensive, consistent, scientifically based suite of spatial layers and databases for the entire United States and territories. In 2009 the first wall to wall National data set was delivered for the fifty United States.  Since this accomplishment, LANDFIRE has released a number of updates to the base...

Fire history, stand structure, and fuel loads in adjacent riparian and upland forests were measured in the Sierra Nevada and southern Cascades. Historic stand structure and fuel loads were then reconstructed using fire history and current stand data. Current and reconstructed riparian and upland forests were compared to determine if...

Maps of the number, size, and species of trees in forests across the western United States have utility for a number of research endeavors, ranging from estimation of terrestrial carbon resources to tree mortality following wildfires. For example, for landscape fire and forest simulations that use the Forest...

This Utah State University Learn and Lunch webinar featured information on using remote sensing, particularly lidar, to create predictive models and maps of forest biomass following anthropogenic activities (i.e. timber harvest), and naturally occurring disturbances (i.e. bark beetle infestation). Research Forester, Dr. Andrew Hudak...

In partnership with the Southern Rockies and Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperatives, we are pleased to announce several upcoming webinars for the Green River Basin Landscape Conservation Design (GRB LCD). The purpose of these webinars is to share several spatial data products developed by Conservation Science Partner and...
