Research and Publications Database

The NRFSN research and publications database leads users to regionally relevant fire science. There are more than 2,900 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.

Ever wish you could be out on the ground watching how fire behaves over the terrain, in different fuels with effects from weather, then use that experience to try and replicate what you saw and predict what will happen tomorrow? Well the Fire Behavior Analyst job is for you. Learn what it's like to be able to watch Mother Nature at...

About half of the Forest Service budget is spent on fire suppression, yet we still can’t explain exactly how wildland fires spread. In order to make more informed decisions and improve fire fighter safety, a new research program at the Missoula Fire Lab is going back to the basics. This webinar with Sara McAllister discusses the...

REDapp is a universal fire behavior calculator developed with financial support from the Canadian Interagency Forest Fire Centre (CIFFC), and in-kind support from fire management agencies across Canada. This application is currently in a beta stage of development, with public release expected in early 2015. Unlike WFDSS, Behave,...

Do you use belt weather kits or electronic handheld weather meters for measuring temperature and relative humidity in the field? Which device do you trust? Belt weather kits for obtaining weather information on prescribed fires and wildfires have been in use since the 1960’s and the use of sling psychrometers from these kits has...

Introduction to WFDSS - Air Quality ToolsSmoke management is an important aspect of managing wildland fire. While mitigating smoke impacts from prescribed burns is important, smoke from large wildfire complexes (such as the AZ/NM fires in 2011) can expose millions of people to significant smoke, with hundreds of thousands living in...

Current operational models of fire spread rely on several constraining assumptions that would ideally be relaxed. A promising method to do this is to develop a more physically based model rather than the mostly empirical basis for the current models. This seminar gives a preliminary look at one such model in...

In this video, Jacquie Parks, Fire and Fuels Management Specialist with the Bitterroot National Forest, describes fire management challenges during the Bitterroot fires of 2000. This was filmed at the Bitterroot National Forest headquarters in Hamilton, MT, which was one of the stops during the Fires of 2000 field trip that was part...

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...
