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.

No one has done more to define the wildland-urban interface problem and empower homeowners to reduce their risk of wildfire than Jack Cohen. His post-fire field examinations and laboratory-based research on fire dynamics led to the concept of the home ignition zone, a phrase he coined. Cohen also co-developed the U.S. National Fire...

In this 3 minute video released by Oregon State University, fire science experts discuss the impact of fire on wildland as well as society's changing perception of the importance of fire and fire safety. Oregon State is conducting world-class research into all aspects of fire including the immediate and long-term effects of...

Community wildfire protection plans have been described as ‘one of the most successful tools’ for addressing wildland fire management in the WUI.  Jakes shares findings from two recently completed studies of CWPPs, one identifying best management practices for developing a CWPP, and the second investigating whether CWPPs make a...

In the American West, wildfire risk to life and property is accelerating as a result of development trends favoring the region’s Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI). Moreover, extended droughts, unseasonably warm temperatures, and other climate-induced impacts are influencing the frequency and size of wildfires. In response, a number of...

This 58 minute video is produced for fire responders to improve knowledge and safety when fighting fires in the wildland-urban interface
Type: Media : Video
There are many potential pathways for wildland fires to ignite buildings within the WUI. These pathways (including both fire and ember exposure) depend on the characteristics of the wildland (e.g., fuels, terrain, weather, etc.), the characteristics of the community (e.g., construction materials, building designs, housing density,...
