Description

The goals of this proposal are to extend an existing JFSP Rapid Response Study (JFSP# 03-S-al) for an additional twelve-month period. Additional funding requested will provide the opportunity for two additional full deployments of the Rapid Response Team, including the airborne thermal system with improvements. The surface wind modeling study of Finney and others will be more completely integrated into the rapid response effort (Modeling surface winds in complex terrain for wildlandfire incident support). The additional deployments will fully support the study of Morgan and others (Assessing the causes, consequences and spatial variability of burn severity: a rapid response proposal). The significant progress gained so far in developing an integrated Geodatabase will be fully realized into an operational model for use by Project principals and for demonstration to the fire research community.
