Analysis of the spatial patterning of trees in the dwarf forest of the Plains and a tall forest in the Wharton Tract of the New Jersey Pine Barrens lead to the following conclusions. (1) In the Plains pitch pine and black-jack oak are exclusively...
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.

The specification of moisture contents in forest fuels is an integral part of any workable fire-danger rating system. This paper presents a linear model for estimating the moisture content of the 100-hour timelag fuels. The variables in the model...
In the first few years following fire, burned chaparral areas are typified by a flush of seed germination and seedling growth not seen in unburned chaparral. The effects of fire on factors of potential importance to this plant response were examined in...
Fuel models were developed to provide data required by the mathematical fire behavior model which is the basis for the Spread and Energy Release Components of the National Fire Danger Rating (NFDR) System. The fuel models quantitatively describe those...
Stability of the atmosphere at different levels is one important factor affecting the behavior of forest fires, but the measurement of stability and other atmospheric phenomena is complex and difficult. The acoustic echo sounder shows promise for...

Tall Timbers’ Wildland Fire Science Program in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service, Southern Research Station, Center for Forest Disturbance Science and Northern Research Station, Carbon, Fire, and Carbon Cycle Sciences.
The Wildland Fire Science Program of Tall Timbers Research Station (Tallahassee, FL) in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service is seeking a quantitative remote sensing analyst for a one-year position, with an additional 2 years contingent upon on applicant’s performance and funding. The overall scope of the funded project is to characterize multiscale feedbacks between forest structure, fire behavior and fire effects. The main focus of the position is to build multiscale structural models of forested vegetation in southeastern pinelands by coupling quantitative modeling techniques with terrestrial laser scanning data to link to fire data and fire models.
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.
