This report is a bibliography of publications on all aspects of forest fire produced during the period 1961 to 1974 at the Petawawa Forest Experiment Station. There are 52 items, listed chronologically in four categories. A short descriptive note...
Fire Behavior Portal
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.

Using association tables and a two-dimensional ordination procedure, two topo-edaphic climaxes (associations) have been identified. These are: (1) the Tsuga heterophylla/Po1ystichum mumitum-OxaIis oregana association occurring on terraces with fine,...
From the text ... 'How, then, to exploit fire's benefits and still curtail its damage potential has become a central question for the Northern Region's scientists and land managers alike.'
Overprotection from natural surface fires in the mixed conifer forest of Yosemite National Park has caused unnatural vegetation changes and increased fire hazards. Fire is being reintroduced as a management tool to rectify these conditions. This report...
The atmospheric trace element abundances associated with agricultural field burning and rural air have been measured for the Willamette Valley of western Oregon. Neutron activation analysis is as used to measure the concentrations of about 26 trace...
From the text... 'The term "mass fire” has been generally used to describe those fires exhibiting the more violent fire behavior with the connotation of both large size and high rates of energy release. Of all the recorded mass fires in urban...
'Between 1962 and 1965, secondary succession in the highveld eco-region of Rhodesia was investigated as part of a study of veld management and bush encroachment. Bush encroachment is the local term for the ecological processes whereby a grass-...
Some tropical woody perennials including three Eucalyptus species, viz. E. porrecta S. T. Blake, E. ptychocarpa F. Muell., and E. jacobsiana Blakely, were observed to have rhizomes and rhizomatous systems. The possession of rhizomes by woody perennials...

With multiple agencies/entities, groups and task forces all working to find solutions for operational concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic, the need for a space to share information is apparent. This forum serves as a platform to ask questions, as well as to share ideas, information, and solutions.

The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) are open through 5 pm MST, September 30, 2020.
The Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) announcement FA-FOA0021-001 has one task statement. Proposals must address one or more of the following topic areas:
- Fuels management and fire behavior
- Changing fire environment
- Emissions and air quality
- Fire effects and post-fire recovery
- Relative impacts of prescribed fire versus wildfire
- Human dimensions of fire
The primary announcement FA-FOA0021-002 has two task statements:
- Sources and distribution of human-caused ignitions and their relation to wildfire impacts
- Reducing damages and losses to valued resources from wildfire
The Regional Fire Science Exchange announcement FA-FOA0021-003 has one task statement focused on leading and executing a regional fire science exchange in the following two regions (see map and supporting information in the FOA):
- Lake States
- Tallgrass Prairie
Catastrophic wildfires, sometimes called “megafires,” are more and more common in the western United States. California in particular is increasingly thought of as having a year-round (24/7/365) fire season. These megafires ignore boundaries, require...
