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.

Massive wildfires cost billions of dollars and burn millions of acres in the U.S. every year, but we know surprisingly little about the basic science of how they spread. At the Fire Lab in Missoula, Montana, researchers reverse-engineer spreading fires using wind tunnels, fire-whirl generators, and giant combustion chambers. They're...

FlamMap is a fire behavior mapping and analysis program that computes potential fire behavior characteristics (spread rate, flame length, fireline intensity, etc.) over an entire FARSITE landscape for constant weather and fuel moisture conditions. Since 2006 FlamMap3 has been widely used by the U.S. Forest Service, National Park...

Patterns of energy and available moisture vary over small distances in mountainous regions and available climate data are too coarse to resolve these terrain-mediated effects. This seminar focused on efforts to improve the physical template we use to analyze vegetation patterns and post-fire ecological effects, including what has...

erry Anderson of the Canadian Forest Service, begins this presentation on the current fire research in Canada. The Canadian Forest Service provides national monitoring, model and software development, mapping, and decision support systems, but is not in the business of fire suppression, since natural resources are owned by the...

In this webinar, presented on February 11, 2015, Paul Werth, a fire weather meteorologist with Weather Research and Consulting Services, LLC, provides a discussion of weather elements that promote extreme fire behavior, regional critical fire weather patterns, and forecast products that are useful in determining areas at risk for...

Technology has improved our utilization of existing fire models but has contributed little to advancing knowledge of fire spread. The knowledge of physical processes, and their organization in producing fire spread, is essential to reliably modeling wildland fire behaviors beyond current capabilities (crown fire, thresholds etc.)....

Scott Goodrick, a research meteorologist with the USDA Forest Service, and Jason Forthofer, a mechanical engineer with the USDA Forest Service, present a summary of vortices and wildland fire. Vortices are almost always present in the wildland fire environment and can sometimes interact with the fire in unpredictable ways, causing...

This webinar is co-hosted by LANDFIRE and members of the Joint Fire Science Program: Great Basin Fire Science Exchange, Southwest Fire Science Consortium, and the Northern Rockies Fire Science Network. Content will address challenges that managers of large landscapes deal with in these regions. The LANDFIRE Program strives to...

An modeling/science team of the US Forest Service Washington Office, Rocky Mountain Research Station, and Pacific Northwest Research Station is conducting a proof-of-concept study integrating meteorological, fire behavior, fuels, and air quality models to improve the accuracy of smoke model dispersion forecasts. The atmospheric...
