Description

GOALS: Deepen the scope of the Symposium as it addresses the relation of weather and climate to the four principle purposes of the Joint Fire Science Plan: a) fuels inventory and mapping, b) evaluation of fuels treatments, c) scheduling fuels treatments, and d) monitoring and evaluation for fuels treatments. Foster interest and broaden the understanding of fire among a new generation of scientists as they consider careers in wildland research.
