A national study of the consequences of fire and fire surrogate treatments

Author(s): James D. McIver, Phil Weatherspoon
Year Published: 2006

We provide highlights of some of the results thus far for the National Fire and Fire Surrogate study (FFS). Highlights summarize work that has been published within the last four years (2003-2006), primarily in theses, proceedings, general technical reports, and peer-reviewed journals (http://www.fs.fed.us/ffs/). In the summary, we highlight site level work by discussing a collection of papers from the SE Piedmont site, provide examples of both multi-site and multi-variate work, and discuss some additional results we’ve discovered thus far. We provide a crosswalk between our proposed and delivered outreach (Appendix 1), and include our communications plan for reference (Appendix 2). We also provide a crosswalk between the enhanced outreach we produced in response to the Board’s Letter of Concern (September 2004)(see Appendix 3); this crosswalk is provided at the end of the table comparing proposed versus delivered outreach. We provide an up-to-date list of citations of all papers, including those in press or in review (Appendix 4: “Publication List, Fire and Fire Surrogate Project”, Updated 30 April, 2006), and enclose a CD containing the full text of all papers in print.
