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.

GOES-16 is NOAA’s latest earth-observing geostationary satellite, launched Nov 19, 2016. The GOES-16 platform hosts many improved earth-and sun-looking instruments, of which the Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) and the Geostationary Lightning Mapper (GLM) are the primary earth-pointing instruments. Both instruments take current...

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...

Coupled fire-atmosphere models intended to be used for landscape-scale fires (domains of hundreds of meters to 10s of kilometers), typically divide the simulation domain up into a mesh of grid cells and these grid cells typically range in size from 1-30 meters on a side. As the processes governing combustion of an individual fuel...

Join us in a discussion on how climatic changes can influence wildland fire activity across the globe and how these critical fire weather variables have changed over the last 40 years. These changes in key weather variables have combined to both lengthen the fire season and increase the fire weather severity within the fire season....

This presentation is the second video available for a webinar entitled "Fire Season 2016 Hot Topics." As the fire community aspires to promote firefighter safety and best practices, this webinar strived to share information regarding lessons learned from the 2016 wildfire season. Every fire season there are parts of the country that...

Recent advances in integrating wildfire planning and strategic wildfire response can create more tangible fire outcomes that are better aligned the national cohesive strategy goals of living sustainably with wildfire. By integrating both in-situ and transboundary wildfire risk assessments with potential operations delineations, we...

Scott Goodrick, a research meteorologist with the USDA Forest Service, and Jason Forthofer, a mechanical engineer with the USDA Forest Service, present a summary of vortices and wildland fire. Vortices are almost always present in the wildland fire environment and can sometimes interact with the fire in unpredictable ways, causing...
