A JFSP Fire Science Exchange Network
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.

The Northern Rockies Fire Science Network and Northwest Fire Science Consortium teamed up with Fire Effects Information System (FEIS) staff to introduce new fire regime products and demonstrate new search functions to inform fire management planning and decision-making in the Northwest and Northern Rocky Mountain regions.  ...

Do large fire “runs” consistently result in high severity fires? What are the trends in proportion burned severely? Do climate, vegetation and topography influence burn severity in the same way that they affect area burned? How do severe fire disturbances influence vegetation response? I draw on recent and ongoing work to...

This webinar presents results of an opportunistic study to quantify the performance of thinning and surface fuel treatment in migrating wildfire behavior and severity, as represented by bole char, crown scorch proportion, tree burn severity index, on the largest wildfire in southwest USA history: 2011 Wallow fire. The results...

LANDFIRE is an ongoing research project and database that contains geospatial data products that describe existing vegetation composition and structure, potential vegetation, surface and canopy fuel characteristics, historical fire regimes, and fire regime condition class. LANDFIRE provides fire and land managers with the...

LANDFIRE fire regime products characterize reference fire frequency and severity and vegetation departure for the entire U.S. The datasets in this product suite include Biophysical Settings, Succession Class, Fire Regime Group, Mean Fire Return Interval, Reference Fire Severity, Vegetation Departure and Vegetation Condition Class....

This is a recording from the 12th Biennial Scientific Conference on the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. The talk focused on research designed to: understand the effects of pine beetle outbreaks on the structure, fire severity, and post-fire recovery in lodgepole pine and Douglas-fir forests in the GYE.

Large wildfire frequency has increased several-fold in recent decades throughout the western United States. These changes have resulted from a combination of human land use practices, altered climates and shifting forest and fire management policies. These fires have had increasingly severe consequences for ecosystems, human health...

Various metrics of vegetation recovery following wildfire are useful measures of ecosystem resilience, yet few studies have quantified vegetation recovery ten or more years post-fire. Conventional wisdom is that recovery time to pre-fire condition will be slower as a function of burn severity but will also vary...

Fire history, stand structure, and fuel loads in adjacent riparian and upland forests were measured in the Sierra Nevada and southern Cascades. Historic stand structure and fuel loads were then reconstructed using fire history and current stand data. Current and reconstructed riparian and upland forests were compared to determine if...
