Bringing People Together & Sharing Knowledge in the Northern Rockies

Research and Publications Database

The NRFSN research and publications database leads users to regionally relevant fire science. There are more than 4,000 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, which provides access to webinars, videos, podcasts, and seminars.

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.

Measurements in the plumes from seven forest fires show that the concentrations of NH3 were considerably in excess of ambient values. Calculation of NH3 emissions from the fires, based on the ratio of NH3/CO in the plumes and emissions of CO from biomass burning, suggest that biomass burning may be a significant source of...

We define disturbance in stream ecosystems to be: any relatively discrete event in time that is characterized by a frequency, intensity, and severity outside a predictable range, and that disrupts ecosystem, community, or population structure and changes resources or the physical environment. Of the three major hypotheses relating...

This FEIS species review synthesizes information on the relationship of Andropogon gerardii (big bluestem) to fire--how fire affects the species and its habitat, and fire management considerations. Information is also provided on the species' taxonomy, distribution, basic biology, and general management. This species review can be...

Monthly average soil temperatures in a burned aspen stand ranged from 0 to 8 °F higher than in the unburned stand at depths to 12 inches for a site in southeastern Idaho. From June through August the first year after burning, soil temperatures were significantly different at all depths in burned and unburned stands. By the second...

The annual costs attributable to large fire suppression in three Forest Service Regions (1970-1981) were estimated as a function of fire perimeters using linear regression. Costs calculated on a per chain of perimeter basis were highest for the Pacific Northwest Region, next highest for the Northern Region, and lowest for the...

Vegetational recovery was compared on firelines constructed in three ground fuel cover types, using conventional hand tools and two types of fireline explosives. Measurement of ground coverage of shrub and herb species before and after disturbance indicated similar vegetational recover on blasted and hand-dug fireline.

Summarizes the objectives, prescriptions, and techniques used in prescribed burning beneath the canopy of ponderosa pine stands, and stands of ponderosa pine mixed with western larch, Douglas-fir, and grand fir. Information was derived from 12 districts in two USDA Forest Service Regions and seven National Forests in Montana and...

A moderate August 1984 rainstorm produced substantial debris flows from tributaries of Beaver Creek, a small Missouri River tributary located near Helena, Montana. The debris flows occurred only in the parts of the drainage that had been burned by an extensive forest fire just prior to the rainstorm. Peak debris discharges were...
