We report the results of a questionnaire and workshop that sought to gain a better and deeper understanding of the contemporary information needs of wildland fire and fuels managers. Results from the questionnaire indicated that the decision to...
Release notes for FARSITE 4.1
A computer simulation model, FARSITE, includes existing fire behavior models for surface, crown, spotting, point-source fire acceleration, and fuel moisture. The model’s components and assumptions are documented. Simulations were run for simple...
In this rapid response project, we have collected data on post-fire effects and pre-fire fuels and vegetation from 10 large fires that burned in 2003 and 2004. We use field and remotely sensed data collected during and soon after wildfires to quantify...
As wildland fire becomes an increasingly important issue affecting our nation's landscapes, land managers must be able to quickly assess fire effects to efficiently allocate rehabilitation resources to areas under their custody. Satellite image-...
Pinyon-juniper woodlands and Wyoming big sagebrush ecosystems have undergone major changes in vegetation structure and composition since settlement by European Americans. These changes are resulting in dramatic shifts in fire frequency, size and...
The primary factor in estimating fire danger is fuel moisture. Fuel moisture varies seasonally and should be measured over an entire fire season using remote sensing technologies and verified using ground measurements. Recent advances in spaceborne and...
The Fire Regime Condition Class (FRCC) Standard Landscape Worksheet Method and Mapping Method provide tools for fire, vegetation, and fuels assessment and management at both the landscape and stand levels. These methods are used to described general...
Fuel reduction has the best chance of success if managers understand the factors that influence public acceptance of fuel management sufficiently to provide effective responses to the questions, objections, and concerns of wildland-urban interface (WUI...
