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.

The goal of this project is to ensure that post harvest 0-3 inch fuel loading, on the patch clear cuts within the Sloan-Kennally timber sale, will be in compliance with Forest Service Manual - 5100, Payette National Forest Supplement 5100-93-1, standards.  In order to meet this goal the existing 0-3 inch fuel loading on the...

A review of sudden aspen decline will illustrate anticipated impacts of climate change on forests.  Bioclimate modeling will be briefly introduced as a means of approximately quantifying and mapping those impacts.  These models, optimized for a local planning area such as a national forest, can be used as part of a...

It is generally assumed that severe disturbances predispose damaged forests to high fire hazard by creating heavy fuel loading conditions. Of special concern is the perception that surface fuel loadings become high as killed trees deposit foliage and woody material on the ground. These high fuel loadings may result in abnormally...

Colorado’s Front Range watersheds provide municipal water supplies for downstream communities. Many of these watersheds have been affected by erosion and sedimentation after wildfire, and managers need information on the frequency and duration of post-fire runoff and erosion problems. This webinar presents the results of research by...

Smoke from wildland fires can have adverse impacts on visibility and also on public health. Models are available for simulating the dispersion, long-range transport, and chemical evolution of fire plumes and predicting their impacts on air quality. However, these models are not perfect tools for decision making purposes. There are...
