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.

There is no question that fire has been and will continue to be one of Mother Nature's major land management tools. What is in question, is the ability of humans to responsibly and safely develop the ability to interact with and use fire....
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.
