Partner Sites

FRAMES offers website hosting and services for wildland fire researchers and managers. These Partner Sites are developed and maintained by partners using FRAMES tools. Some Partner Sites are available to the public, while others are Intranet sites where information and tools are shared within a select group.

Alaska Fire Science Consortium

A JFSP regional consortium formed to promote communication between managers and scientists and to provide a science delivery platform.

Applied Fire Behavior

Publications related to wildland fire behavior and fire danger rating authored or co-authored by Dr. Martin E. Alexander.


The ArcBurn project is designed to integrate cultural resources information into fire management decision processes.

Assessing Burn Severity

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.


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 some fire effects.

Emissions & Smoke Portal

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.

Extreme Fires Portal

Quantifying the biogeoscientific and societal impacts of extreme wildland fires from the regional to community scales in the US northern Rockies.


FEAT/FIREMON Integrated (FFI) is a monitoring software tool designed to assist managers with collection, storage and analysis of ecological information.

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.

Fire History Analysis & Exploration System (FHAES)

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.


Fire Effects Monitoring and Inventory Protocol (FIREMON) is an agency independent plot level sampling system designed to characterize changes in ecosystem attributes over time.

Fire Operations Maps

Interagency fire operations maps intended for responding ground resources and air resources as they travel across state lines.


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 simulates the dynamic processes that occur within a fire and the way those processes feed off and alter each other.

Fire Videos and Webinars Archive

FRAMES is cataloging and archiving videos, webinars and other presentations hosted by its various partners, including the Wildland Fire Science Partnership, the Wildland Fire Lessons Learned Center, Joint Fire Science Program regional consortia, and the International Association of Wildland Fire.


FireWorks is an educational program about the science of wildland fire, designed for students in grades 1-12.

Human Dimensions & Fire Social Sciences (HDFSS)

The goal of the HDFSS project is to provide social science fire managers can use.

IFIRE - UI Combustion Lab

The IFIRE - UI Combustion Lab was developed to advance research and educational opportunities within the field of fire sciences.

JFSP Biomass Review

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 After Wildfire

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.


Resources for NAFRI (National Advanced Fire and Resource Institute) courses.

Next Generation Fire Severity Mapping

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.

Northern Rockies Climate and Fire

The goal of this JFSP-funded project was to identify the past, present, and future climate drivers of regional fire and fuel dynamics in the Northern Rockies.

NWCG Fire and Fuels Resource Portal

The Fire Planning and Fuels Management Resource Portal provides information, tools, and resources including career development-related information for fire planning and fuels management specialists.

SERDP Biomass Emission Factor Database

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.

WFMRDA Fuels and Fire Ecology

The WFMRDA-Fuels and Fire Ecology group (formerly NIFTT) is tasked with coordinating, developing, and transferring consistent, efficient, and science-based fuel and fire ecology technology primarily in web-based and mobile technologies.

WFSP Recordings

Recordings from the 2012 AFE 5th International Fire Ecology and Management Conference Special Session, Looking back for a clear view of the future: 1999-2012.

World of Wildland Fire

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.
