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 nearly 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, which provides access to webinars, videos, podcasts, and seminars.

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.

Recreationists or city dwellers are usually most often thought of as being responsible for starting forest fires. But a limited study showed that fire starters were more apt to be people who lived near and worked on the National Forests. They were relatively young and undereducated, and had "good reputations" in their communities....

The moisture, ether extractive, and energy content of ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii L.) foliage were measured during two fire seasons. The moisture content of l- and 2-year-old needles was found to rise throughout the summer. The ether extractive content was highest in the fir foliage...

The concept of forest fire is especially difficult to deal with in an objective manner because fire has deep psychological associations for most animals, especially man. Moreover, attitudes toward forest fires have been greatly conditioned by what has been called the most effective advertising campaign in history...

In 1966, preliminary results of this study were reported by Lyon in Research Paper INT-29, Initial Vegetal Development Following Prescribed Burning of Douglas-fir in South-Central Idaho. Because of a misplaced decimal point in that report, data for density and volume of shrubs 2 years after the fire are incorrect. Although the...

A comparison of streamflow records from three small mountain streams in north-central Washington before, during, and after a severe forest fire showed three immediate effects of destructive burning. These were: Flow rate was greatly reduced while the fire was actively burning. Destruction of vegetation in the riparian zone reduced...

This study was undertaken to determine the thermal properties of, and the pyrolysis products from, western cottonwood (Populus trichocavya) and two of its major components: cellulose and xylan. The modifications due to treatment of the wood and its components with an acid and alkali were also documented. Differential thermal...

This work was undertaken because of a mutual interest of the Department of Defense, Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), and the USDA Forest Service in the problems of detecting hot targets against natural terrain backgrounds using airborne infrared (IR) line scanning instrumentation. The study objectives were broadly defined...

Physical fuel properties were determined utilizing measurements of volume, surface area, and weight for ponderosa pine forest floors and cheatgrass. Average values of these properties for ponderosa pine needle litter and cheatgrass were respectively: surface area-to-volume ratio (a), 57.6 and 144.0 cm.3/cc.; particle density, 0.51...
