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 4,800 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 Webinars & Recorded Media Archive, which provides access to webinars, videos, podcasts, storymaps, 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.

Background: Wildfires are increasing in size and severity in forests of the western USA, driven by climate change and land management practices during the 20th century. Altered fire regimes have resulted in a greater need for knowl‑ edge on best practices for managing burned landscapes, especially in instances where a return to a...

Post-fire remote sensing provides a promising tool for assessing building damage, destruction, and defensive actions from wildland fire. However, limited studies exist to guide image acquisitions. Consequently, we compare remotely piloted aircraft systems and satellite post-fire imagery to ground-based assessments from the 2017...

The destruction of forest cover by wildfires has important consequences on the stability of forest ecosystems. It is well recognized that forests play a key role in regulating the hydrological cycle by modifying rainfall interception and evapotranspiration but also affecting hydrological and erosion responses of the soil surface....

The loading of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) from soils to inland waters and ultimate transport to the ocean is a critical flux pathway in the terrestrial biosphere carbon cycle. Fires can significantly affect this flux through biogeochemical processes related to oxidation and mobilization of DOC in the soil. Therefore, in order to...

Wildfires are known to be one of the main causes of soil erosion and land degradation, and their impacts on ecosystems and society are expected to increase in the future due to changes in climate and land use. It is therefore vital to mitigate the increased hydrological and erosive response after wildfires to maintain the...

Active wildfire seasons in the western U.S. warrant the evaluation of post‐fire forest management strategies. Ground‐based salvage logging is often used to recover economic loss of burned timber. In unburned forests, ground‐based logging often follows best management practices by leaving undisturbed areas near streams called stream...

Forested ecosystems cover nearly one-third of Earth’s land surface and can perform an essential function as one of the globe’s largest terrestrial carbon sinks, absorbing more carbon than they release, lowering the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Wildfire affects the carbon cycle through direct carbon emissions...

Runoff and erosion processes can increase after wildfire and post‐fire salvage logging, but little is known about the specific effects of soil compaction and surface cover after post‐fire salvage logging activities on these processes. We carried out rainfall simulations after a high‐severity wildfire and post‐fire salvage logging to...

We live in a changing world where climate change, built-up fuels, and human ignitions are causing fires to increase in size, frequency, and severity. In this changing world, managers are charged with stewarding resilient landscapes under the National Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy. Additionally, federal law requires...
