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 3,600 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.

Visitors to the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, MT, were asked about their knowledge of fire effects and attitudes toward fire management in wilderness settings. In comparison to a similar 1971 study, visitors were more knowledgeable about fire effects and more supportive of fire management rather than fire suppression. About half the...

One objective of wilderness and parkland fire ecology research is to describe the relationships between fire and unmanaged ecosystems, so that strategies can be determined that will provide a more nearly natural incidence of fire. More than 50 years of efforts directed toward exclusion of wildland fires in the Northern Rocky...

In the spring of 2017 the Advanced Fire Environment Learning Unit asked Mark Finney to provide some thoughts regarding different topics related to fire behavior modeling. There are pitfalls analysts can run into when running the models, Mark has provided some thoughts on model settings, calibrating, why use FSPro and what it takes...

Congressional designated wilderness areas offer unique opportunities for remote area experiences with solitude and self-reliance. How do people who have disabilities fit into those areas? Is a wheelchair mechanical transport? During this webinar, accessibility expert Janet Zeller (Forest Service) gives an overview of what is...

This webinar highlighted results from a study investigating the ability of wildfire to act as a fuel treatment. The study evaluated whether or not wildfires limited the occurrence, size, and severity of subsequent wildfires in four large wilderness complexes in Idaho, Montana, and New Mexico. The study focused on protected areas to...

Jocelyn Aycrigg, Department of Fish and Wildlife Sciences, University of Idaho; Matthew Dietz, The Wilderness Society; and James Tricker, University of Montana & Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute, presented a simulation on how adding different types of lands (ex. National Park Service non-wilderness lands, Bureau of...

Wilderness has played an invaluable role in the development of wildland fire science. In the last fifteen years, since the last state-of-knowledge review, tremendous progress has been made in the development of models and data, in understanding the complexity of wildland fire as a landscape process, and in...

Mountainous topography creates fine-scale environmental mosaics that vary in precipitation, temperature, insolation, and slope position. This mosaic in turn influences fuel accumulation, moisture, and forest structure that in turn influence patterns of burn severity. We studied the effects of varying environmental conditions on burn...
