This document summarizes the 2010 AFSC workshop. Topics included the Tanacross Shaded Fuel Break project, the Nenana Ridge Experimental Fuels Treatment project, climate change in Alaska, fire mapping methods using SAR, and potential research needs in Alaska and the method of science delivery.
The Nenana Ridge Experimental Fuels Treatment Research Project was funded by the Joint Fire Science Program. The project was designed to quantify the effects of fuels reduction treatments on fire behavior and post-fire vegetation dynamics in Alaska black spruce forests. Scientists, engineers and foresters from RMRS Fire Fuels and Smoke program worked closely with scientists from PNW station, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the Alaska Fire Service and local land managers to measure the effect of different treatments on fire behavior.
