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 effectiveness of pre-existing fuelbreaks during the 2014 Funny River Fire as well as providing insight on how IFTDSS can inform the design of future fuel treatments.
