The fire behavior topic page contains resources and activities related to the study and management of the direction, spread and intensity of wildland fire.
Wildland Fire Library (firelibrary.org)
The Wildland Fire Library (firelibrary.org) is a collection of long-term assessments, fire progressions, fire behavior reports, and other documents and resources to support fire modeling and assessment of long-duration fires. Each file is tied to some event with a location, a start date, and background information. This site is operated by Rick Stratton and Jim Edmonds of the USFS National Office.

A special session at the 6th International Fire Ecology Congress of the Association for Fire Ecology.
The increasing cost of fighting wildland fire has had a negative and lasting impact on the Forest Service’s non-fire, mission critical activities. How do we evaluate the potential impacts of mitigation investments on future wildfire management costs?...
A computational study was performed to improve our understanding of the ignition of live fuel in the forced ignition and flame spread test apparatus, a setup where the impact of the heating mode is investigated by subjecting the fuel to forced...
Why is calibrating the fire behavior models important to predicting fire behavior - an interview with Mark Finney a Research Scientist at the RMRS Fire Sciences Lab. Mark highlight's considerations an analyst should make when validating fire behavior...
Why use FSPro - an interview with Mark Finney - This tool was developed to help inform risk based decisions associated with values at risk and probability of fire impacts to those values.
What makes a good analyst - some thoughts from Mark Finney and his perspective of what makes a good analyst. An analyst is curious about fire behavior, they use judgement and interpretation to communicate and validate models in relation to the actual...
Mark Finney provides some considerations when setting up FSPro analyses - What is it you want to know from the analysis - is it the likely hood something is going to happen or is it the potential something is going to happen? These are different...
These tables calculate Dew Point and Relative Humidity based on the observed wet bulb and dry bulb temperatures and the elevation at the site of the observation.
Each year, fuel treatments reduce the likelihood of uncharacteristically severe wildland fire in overstocked stands across millions of acres in the United States. Typically, these treatments target small-diameter trees for removal, producing large...
The Forestry & Natural Resources Extension program invites applications for a full-time (1.00 FTE), 12-month, tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position (depending on qualifications).
This is a tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor faculty position in the College of Forestry, with an academic home in Forest Engineering, Resources, and Management. This is a statewide position located at the OSU campus in Corvallis, Oregon.
This position is designed to focus on Extension program development and delivery related to wildland fire science and management. In 2018, Oregon wildfire costs hit a record high of $514 million, with over 800,000 acres burned across the state, resulting in ecological, social, and economic damage. The position will focus on educational programming to assist private forest and range owners and managers, wildland-urban interface homeowners, communities, and fire and fuel specialists and the fire suppression workforce. Key topics will include collaborative natural resource management, wildland fire fuel reduction and management, prescribed burning, timber and range management treatments to build fire resistance and resilience, post-burn recovery, firewise programming, and fire workforce development. The position will work directly with Extension Agents and Regional Specialists in the Forestry & Natural Resources and Fire Extension Programs, and will also work cooperatively with external partners such as the Oregon Department of Forestry, U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Oregon Small Woodlands Association, the Oregon Tree Farm System, The Nature Conservancy, Sustainable Northwest, Northwest Fire Science Consortium, local fire departments, and the State Fire Marshal.
Posting will close on January 30, 2020, with a full consideration date of Januray 17, 2020.
