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.

At 24:00 the webinar transitions into another webinar topic. Healthy forests are vital to our future, and consistent, long-term monitoring of forest health indicators is necessary to identify forest resources deteriorating across large regions. The Forest Health Monitoring (FHM) Program of the USDA Forest Service, with cooperating...

Drought imposes many tangible impacts on human food and water supplies, but the effects of drought can actually go much deeper. Long periods without rainfall can alter the delicate balance of natural ecosystems and harm many fish and wildlife species. The term “ecological drought” encompasses and emphasizes these environmental...

Climate change is no longer a threat; it's a reality. A rapidly changing climate is already transforming ecosystems and the processes that sustain them; greater changes lie in front of us. Climate change will change physical relationships (e.g. the baseflow in streams from a given amount of rainfall). Climate change will change...

What is Climate Change? How will our changing climate impact seasonal weather conditions across the Southwest? This webinar was hosted by the Southwest Fire Science Consortium and was presented to prepare attendees of the 'Fostering resilience in southwestern ecosystems: A problem solving workshop' event (http://www.frames.gov/about...

The amount of carbon being taken up by the biosphere is clearly increasing; however, the variance in the global carbon cycle also appears to be increasing. This increasing variance may be indicative of C sink instability, or it may simply be noise in the global C cycle. Therefore identifying the mechanisms...

The topics discussed include the role of using climate and climate change information for fire management. Examples will be provided of sources of climate information, and how this and climate change information is being considered for use in fire management. Presentations will include perspectives from researchers providing climate...

There will be dramatic changes to most landscapes of the western US over the next century, such as shifts in vegetation communities, changes in fire regimes, and increases in smoke emissions. These changes will result from complex interactions among vegetation, fuels, fire, and altered climate at the finest scales causing new and...
