The members of the MT/ID Airshed Group must utilize the web-based data entry application (historically referred to as RAZU) to store all burn information for the coming year. This database, in the past, had to be emptied prior to start of the next year...
Alaska Fire Portal
The Alaska Fire Portal provides information about fire science and technology relevant to Alaska. Our goal is to provide "one-stop shopping" for resource managers, decision makers, scientists, students, and communities who want access to the results of efforts to understand and manage fire and fuels on lands in Alaska. Content may also be relevant to boreal forests of western Canada.
A substantial amount of the Alaska-related content was originally compiled through the FIREHouse project (the Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse), funded by the Joint Fire Science Program, and its two related projects: the Alaska Reference Database, (which was merged the FRAMES Resource Catalog, accessible through the "Catalog Records" tab below) and the Alaska Fire and Fuels Research Map, hosted through the AICC ArcIMS mapping website.

The document describes the Smoke Impact Spreadsheet (SIS) model, which is a screening-level modeling system for calculating PM2.5 emissions and airborne concentrations downwind of natural or managed wildland fires.
The Fuels Management Analyst Suite of programs facilitates: (1) the viewing of published and locally generated Photo Series and the searching of published and locally generated Photo Series for photos that meet defined criteria; (2) the reduction of...
Users' guide to using DDWoodyPC component of the Fuels Management Analyst Plus suite of computer programs. Fuel loading and fuel bed depths can be estimated using photos contained in a number of published fuels photo series that are contained in...
The Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team (PNW) completed a total of eight 3-day regional fuels workshops and six ½-day 'mini-workshops' that demonstrated the use of the Natural Fuels Photo Series, Digital Photo Series, Fuel...
This report describes a new set of standard fire behavior fuel models for use with Rothermel's surface fire spread model and the relationship of the new set to the original set of 13 fire behavior fuel models. To assist with transition to using the new...
The focus of the paper is on fire as an element affecting the conservation of biodiversity and maintaining sustainable resources and ecosystem services for people. Thusly, emphasis is placed on the management of fire at places identified for their...
The Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team has completed Consume version 3.0 (http://www.fs.fed.us/pnw/fera/products/consume.html). This system is the principle science...
The goal of the project was to fulfill a thorough investigation of (1) the potential and limitations of the remote sensing lidar technique when operating in smoky polluted atmospheres, and (2) the ability of lidar in providing the accurate real time...
With multiple agencies/entities, groups and task forces all working to find solutions for operational concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, the need for a space to share information is apparent. This forum serves as a platform to ask questions, as well as to share ideas, information, and solutions.
Please refer to the National Wildfire Coordinating Group's website regarding infectious disease guidance for wildland fire incidents, Emergency Medical Committee.
- Coordination with fire management and outreach programs to design a National Outreach Strategy.
- Coordination with Service visitor services and other fire outreach staffs, conduct a national media relations campaign to profile fire management "success stories." Conceives, develops, implements and evaluates public affairs and outreach strategies designed to meet internal and external needs for information on the Service Fire Management Program.
- Establish a public affairs program to educate the public about the Service fire management program.
- Develop and distribute strategic briefing packages for Congress, Department, and the Office of Wildland Fire on key fire management action areas.
- Raise visibility of the program within the Service by increasing internal communications about fire management activities.
- Gather information and produce information materials concerning policies, programs and activities for dissemination.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) of the U.S. Department of Commerce and the National Science Foundation (NSF) are now calling for research proposals in support of improved disaster resilience.
Natural hazards such as earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes and fires cause tremendous damage to communities across the U.S. every year. While these events cannot be prevented completely, their impacts can be dampened by disaster resilience measures such as policies, designs, codes and standards.
NIST and NSF plan to award a total of $3.1 million for scientific and engineering research into disaster-related phenomena that can significantly improve our nation’s defenses against natural hazards. The agencies will co-manage the Disaster Resilience Research Grants (DRRG) program and intend to make 8-12 awards of up to $400,000 each.
To apply, submit your letter of intent by Aug. 14, 2020. The deadline for full proposals is Sept. 15, 2020. NSF and NIST will host an informational webcast on Aug. 3, 2020.
