A Chaparral Fuel Modeling Workshop was held at the Riverside Forest Fire Laboratory March 11-12, 1997. This workshop was follow-up to the workshop held last April in Missoula, Montana. Both workshops were conducted under the auspices of the Fire Modeling Institute (FMI). Dr. Jim Brown (Forest Service Research, retired) proposed the FMI idea as a mechanism to bring fire modeling researchers together with fire management personnel to solve problems using current fire-related models. More information about FMI is available from Wayne Cook, national technology transfer specialist, at the Missoula Intermountain Fire Sciences Laboratory.
