Partner Sites Overview

Alaska Fire Science Consortium thumbnail
The Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC) is part of a national fire science knowledge exchange network supported by the Joint Fire Science Program. The AFSC's primary purpose is to strengthen the link between fire science research and on-the-ground application by promoting communication between managers and scientists, providing an organized fire science delivery platform, and facilitating collaborative scientist-manager research development.
Applied Fire Behavior thumbnail image
Publications related to wildland fire behavior and fire danger rating authored or co-authored by Dr. Martin E. Alexander.
ArcBurn thumbnail image
The ArcBurn project is designed to integrate cultural resources information into fire management decision processes.
Assessing Burn Severity thumbnail image
The Assessing Burn Severity project is a JFSP-funded project investigating the spatial variability in fire effects and to explore relationships between burn severity and fuels, fire behavior, local weather, and topography.
BehavePlus thumbnail image
The BehavePlus fire modeling system is a Windows based computer program that can be used for any fire management application that involves modeling fire behavior and fire effects.
Smoke thumbnail image
The FRAMES Emissions & Smoke Portal is a partner-sponsored site providing access to information about smoke and emissions from wildland fire, including the online Smoke Management and Air Quality for Land Managers online tutorial.
FERGI thumbnail image
FERGI (Fire-Enhanced Runoff and Gully Initiation Model) is a post fire, erosion prediction utility.
FFI thumbnail image
FFI (FEAT/FIREMON Integrated) is a monitoring software tool designed to assist managers with collection, storage and analysis of ecological information.
FFI thumbnail image
The FFI-DataDepot is an online data repository for fire effects monitoring data collected using the FEAT/FIREMON Integrated (FFI) software application.
FFS thumbnail image
The Fire and Fire Surrogates Study (FFS) assessed the effects of fire and fire surrogate fuel treatments, specifically, quantifying the costs and ecological consequences of alternative fire and fire surrogate restorative treatments in a number of forest types and conditions across the US.
USFS shield
The Fire Behavior Assessment Team (FBAT) is a unique fire module that monitors wildfires and prescribed fires to support USFS strategic goals through information delivery during and after incidents.
FHAES thumbnail image
The Fire History Analysis & Exploration System (FHAES) is the result of an effort to redevelop and enhance components of the FHX2 computer program, considered to be the standard for fire history analysis. FHAES is a web-based design that is user-friendly and easily accessible to a broad range of users.
FIREMON thumbnail image
Fire Effects Monitoring and Inventory Protocol (FIREMON) is an agency independent plot level sampling system designed to characterize changes in ecosystem attributes over time.
FIRESEV thumbnail image
The Fire Severity Mapping System Project (FIRESEV) provides fire managers with critical information about the potential ecological effects of wildland fire at multiple levels of thematic, spatial, and temporal detail.
FIRETEC thumbnail image
HIGRAD/FIRETEC is a physics-based, 3-D computer code designed to simulate the constantly changing, interactive relationship between fire and its environment. It does so by representing the coupled interaction between fire, fuels, atmosphere, and topography on a landscape scale.
FireWorks thumbnail image
FireWorks is an educational program about the science of wildland fire, designed for students in grades 1-12. The FireWorks program consists of a curriculum and a trunk of materials, including laboratory equipment, specimens, CDs, books, and kits of specialized materials for teachers. Content focuses on the physical science of fire behavior, human influences on fire, and fire ecology.
USFS shield
The USFS Fuels Academy provides a structured, 3-year training and development program for new or recently hired Fuels Specialists to prepare them for full-performance in their positions.
Idaho Prescribed Fire Council thumbnail
The mission of the Idaho Prescribed Fire Council is to promote the safe and effective use of prescribed fire for healthy forests and rangelands, wildlife, and fire resilient communities across Idaho.
Fire Operations Maps thumbnail graphic
The purpose of this site is to provide maps for wildland firefighting resources to build situational awareness before and while responding to wildland fires.
JFSP Biomass thumbnail image
This site was developed to showcase the results of the JFSP-funded project "A Review of Available Economic and Financial Biomass Information and Tools for Federal Land Managers in the West."
Long Term Recovery thumbnail image
Researching long term (>10 yrs) response in fuel loads and vegetation composition after large and severe wildfires across five fire-adapted ecosystems in the western US, including Alaska.
Next Generation Fire Severity Mapping thumbnail
Scientists from the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station and the University of Montana conducted a study in which observed data were used to produce statistical models describing the probability of high severity fire as a function of fuel, topography, climate, and fire weather.
SERDP thumbnail
The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is supporting the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station and Pacific Southwest Research Station in the development of a database that contains emissions information related to prescribed burning.
Southwest FireCLIME logo
The Southwest FireCLIME document library is an annotated bibliography of published research related to the interactions between climate change, wildfire, and subsequent ecosystem effects in the southwestern U.S. The 190 publications contained in the library were identified through a comprehensive literature review, and have each been summarized to distill the outcomes as they pertain to fire and climate.
SWFSC Searches thumbnail
The Southwest Fire Science Consortium is partnering with FRAMES to help fire managers access important fire science information related to the Southwest's top ten fire management science issues.
WOWfire thumbnail
The vision of the World of Wildland Fire is to provide and connect fire science educators and trainers with scientifically solid and peer-reviewed teaching tools and techniques, using state-of-the-art materials, which will be free and accessible to all.
