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.

Tree mortality is one of the most important effects of forest fires, influencing important ecosystem services such as forest productivity, wildlife habitat and carbon sequestration. In this webinar participants will learn about the latest research on the mechanisms of fire-caused tree mortality, and how it varies across tree species...

On October 27, Paul Rogers of the Western Aspen Alliance discussed the impact of climate change on aspen ecosystems, with an emphasis on aspen fire types. The presentation covered the variability of aspen responses to fire and emphasized unique fire-related systems to wean practitioners from one-size-fits-all prescriptions for aspen...

Mountain pine beetles (Dendroctonusponderosae; MPB) are causing extensive mortality of whitebarkpine (Pinusalbicaulis) throughout the species’srange. In the highest mountains where these trees grow, they reach alpine treeline–the climatic boundary where growth forms transition from trees to shrub-like krummholz. Although...

Smoke from residual combustion in the aftermath of prescribed burns or wildfires can combine with certain atmospheric conditions usually late at night to produce superfog -- a fog reducing visibility to less than 10 feet, and frequently to less than 3 feet. When this smoke/fog is transported across a major roadway, the results are...

A brief reconnaissance of the Great Plains and fire that will place its fire scene within the national narrative. From the onset of European contact, the grasslands were famous for their fires. They stimulated a debate about the relative roles of climate and humans. They prompted one of America's two national traditions of fire...

Presentation by Kevin Hiers of the Tall Timbers Research Station. Presents a review from an experienced manager turned wildland fire scientist, of concerns, strategies and opportunities for burning in sites with duff accumulations. From the October 2017 Southern Fire Exchange Duff Fire Science Workshop at the FSU Coastal and Marine...

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.

Effectively modeling landscape-scale heterogeneity and its feedbacks on vegetation and fire dynamics is a persistent and timely challenge in a rapidly changing climate. Towards addressing this challenge, my doctoral research focuses on predicting climate-fire-vegetation interactions under projected climate...

The Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment (AGWA) tool is a GIS-based hydrologic modeling tool that uses commonly available GIS data layers to fully parameterize, execute, and spatially visualize results for the RHEM, KINEROS2, KINEROS-OPUS, SWAT2000, and SWAT2005 watershed runoff and erosion models. Accommodating novice to...
