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 4,000 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 ecological effects of wildland fire – also termed the fire severity – are often highly heterogeneous in space and time. This heterogeneity is a result of spatial variability in factors such as fuel, topography, and climate (e.g. a map of mean annual temperature). However, temporally variable factors such as daily weather and...

erry Anderson of the Canadian Forest Service, begins this presentation on the current fire research in Canada. The Canadian Forest Service provides national monitoring, model and software development, mapping, and decision support systems, but is not in the business of fire suppression, since natural resources are owned by the...

Fire behavior and effects models are frequently used to inform fire and land management decisions despite a lack of testing against field measurements. The Adaptive Management Services Enterprise Team (AMSET, USFS) coordinates a module focused on the collection of pre- and post-fire fuels and fire behavior data during wildland fires...

Bret Butler, of the Fire Lab in Missoula, addresses the problem stated in the IRPG, of how to calculate the increase in Safety Zone sizes when considering slope and wind. Currently, there is a beta version Safety Zone Calculator android app available for testing and feedback. Contact Bret Butler if interested at: bwbutler@fs.​fed....

This presentation is the first of two within a webinar entitled "Sharing Fire Behavior Practices & Lessons Learned: Fire Season 2015". As the fire behavior community aspires to promote best practices amongst a range of fire behavior experience, this webinar strives to share information regarding lessons learned from fire...

Since late 2015, a one dimensional model of snow pack structure, know as SNOWPACK, has been evaluated by the National Weather Service at Missoula, in collaboration with Montana State University. The model is driven by point-based output from a high-resolution numerical model (WRF-ARW).Hourly forecasts of incoming radiation,...

Through the partnership of Joint Fire Science Program, K-State Research and Extension, and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service this video was created to cover several techniques of prescribed burn ignition techniques

Wildland fire potential is best described as a combination of available fuels, suitable weather conditions and sources of ignitions and weather is the most spatially and temporally variable of these three components. Weather variables such as temperature, relative humidity, precipitation and wind speed...

This webinar was facilitated by Tom St. Clair, Fairbanks, Alaska, and focused on WFDSS modeling and weather. The agenda items covered included: how to pick RAWS to get the best data for wind and fuels, using predicted weather, ERC classes tab in WFDSS, ERC streams tab in WFDSS, winds tab in WFDSS, dealing with weather forecast...
