Description: Cary Newman is the Fire Planner for the San Juan National Forest in southern Colorado. Cary is a Long Term Fire Analyst who used some different methodologies for modeling fire behavior on the Soberanes Fire in California this season. Working with geospatial fire behavior models for more than a decade he has learned that in spite of model limitations or inferior data there are often alternative methodologies that can be used to improve modeled results. Cary has been a pioneer in exploring new approaches to unique problems in fire behavior modeling.
