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.

Wildfire! Preventing Home Ignitions is a 19-minute video available from the Rocky Mountain Research Station. This program tells you how a wildfire can ignite your home. A 'home ignition zone,' the area that includes a home and its immediate surroundings, determines a home's ignition resistance during a severe wildfire. Some of the...

Prescribed fire is an essential management tool for restoring and maintaining fire-dependent ecosystems; however, land managers are unable to apply prescribed fire at the necessary levels. Past surveys have identified a range of policies and regulations that managers say limit their ability to conduct prescribed fire. We are...

A 13-minute presentation recorded in February 2009 as part of Effective Communication for Smoke Management in a Changing Air Quality Environment. This presentation defines and describes the constituents of smoke which impact human health. An example of wildland fire smoke affecting the health of a community is examined.

Smoke generated from low-intensity prescribed fires used for fuels management can have an adverse impact on local air quality, raising human health and safety concerns especially in wildland-urban-interface areas.  Local smoke behavior is a complex process and is highly dependent on local ambient atmospheric conditions (e.g....

Fuel Loading Models (FLMs) and Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCSs) fuelbeds are used throughout wildland fire science and management to simplify fuel inputs into fire behavior and effects models, but they have yet to be thoroughly evaluated with field data. In this study, we used a large...

The Northeast Forest Fire Protection Compact and the North Atlantic Fire Science Exchange held a partners meeting, Igniting Exchange: Bridging the Gap between Science and Management. A true EXCHANGE designed to expose fire managers to useful scientific studies and expose scientists to the implications of their science.

Wildfire often results in striking changes to the landscape and consequently we historically considered that it would have negative effects on and pose serious risk to trout populations in the West. But to date, empirical evidence of negative effects on fish populations from wildfire has been equivocal. The immediate effects of fire...
