This document provides basic protocols to monitor and inventory Alaska fuels and/or fire effects. This protocol provides sampling guidance to meet common fire effects monitoring objectives; however, each project lead should consider how well this protocol meets specific project objectives. It may be necessary to include additional methods, or to drop some of the methods here in order to meet your project's objectives. These guidelines for monitoring wildland fires, prescribed fires and mechanical treatments were developed in consultation with the Interagency Alaska Fire Effects Task Group (FETG), NPS Fire Monitoring Handbook, and USFS FIREMON methods. The first link below is for the monitoring protocol and the second link is for the data sheets.
