Presenter: Shirley Zylstra
Publisher: Alaska Fire Science Consortium
Year: 2015

Shirley Zylstra, of USFS Missoula Technical Development Center (fs.fed.us/eng/techdev/mtdc.htm), gave a talk and demonstration on the properties of aerial retardant, foams and gels along with tips on improving effectiveness. She presented this at two...

Presenter: Brendan M. Rogers
Publisher: Alaska Fire Science Consortium
Year: 2015

The degree and manner in which different fires affect climate is a complete unknown, but is expected to vary substantially and may in fact represent a currently untapped climate mitigation service. In this webinar, Rogers will provide background on...

Presenter: Randi R. Jandt
Publisher: Alaska Fire Science Consortium, Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP)
Year: 2015

Randi Jandt talked about the evolution of Alaska firefighting practices (field and management)over the past 50 years. We are starting to be aware of the changes in climate and in Alaska forests: is the wildfire "problem" the same one we...

Presenter: Scott Guyer
Year: 2015

In 2011 BLM funded a five year Assessment, Inventory and Monitoring (AIM) pilot project within the National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska (NPRA). The NPRA was specifically selected due to its mandate of supplying national energy needs while protecting...

Presenter: Jennifer L. Barnes , Lisa B. Saperstein , Robert Ziel
Publisher: Alaska Fire Science Consortium
Year: 2015

Jennifer Barnes, Lisa Saperstein, and Robert Ziel provide a quick refresher on WFDSS Fire Behavior Models, updates on fuel models for Alaska, and provide information on where to sign up to help with fire behavior modeling this summer. Near Term Fire...

Presenter: Lisa B. Saperstein
Publisher: Alaska Fire Science Consortium
Year: 2014

This webinar explores a current effort to use the Interagency Fuel Treatment Decision Support System (IFTDSS) in Alaska for fuel treatment planning on or adjacent to the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. In addition, IFTDSS was also used to assess the...

Presenter: Lisa B. Saperstein , Brian Sorbel , Robert Ziel
Publisher: Alaska Fire Science Consortium
Year: 2014

The Webinar on March 5, 2014 was organized by the Alaska Fire Modeling Applications Committee and hosted by Alaska Fire Science Consortium. Three fire analysts discuss the good, the bad and the ugly from their experiences modeling several Alaska fires...

Presenter: Brad Kinder , Wei Min Hao
Year: 2014

Since 2010, the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) has been coordinating a USDA multi-agency program to conduct an emissions inventory of black carbon from fires and burning in Russia, examine transport of black carbon from these sources to the Arctic, and...

Presenter: B. Michael Wotton
Year: 2014

Mike Wotton's current research focuses on the development of fuel moisture, fire occurrence and fire behaviour models for use in daily operational fire management activities as well as in the development of climate change impacts scenarios. His...

Presenter: Ralph A. Kahn
Year: 2014

Satellite remote sensing is generally the most practical way to measure aerosol amount and type frequently, over large areas. However, aerosol remote sensing is especially challenging in the polar regions, due to the combination of very bright surface...
