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.

State of Alaska with fire in the center
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.
Flames and smoke visible above a forested area
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 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.
Behave7 logo
The Behave fire modeling system is used to predict fire behavior in multiple situations. Behave can be used for any fire management application that involves modeling fire behavior and some fire effects.
SmoC thumbnail
The FRAMES Emissions & Smoke Portal is sponsored by the NWCG Smoke Committee to provide smoke management information and resources to the community of fire, land management, and regulatory professionals tasked with addressing smoke from wildland fire.
Hillside after a burn
FERGI (Fire-Enhanced Runoff and Gully Initiation Model) is a post fire, erosion prediction utility.
FFI-DataDepot banner logo
The FFI-DataDepot is an online data repository for fire effects monitoring data collected using the FEAT/FIREMON Integrated (FFI) software application.
FFI banner logo
FFI (FEAT/FIREMON Integrated) is a monitoring software tool designed to assist managers with collection, storage and analysis of ecological information.
FFS map
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
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.
Fire Effects Monitoring and Inventory System (FIREMON) is an agency independent plot level sampling system designed to characterize changes in ecosystem attributes over time.
JFSP logo
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.
FireWorks logo
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.
Idaho PFC 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 Ops Maps
The purpose of this site is to provide maps for wildland firefighting resources to build situational awareness before and while responding to wildland fires.
Fuels Academy banner logo
The Interagency 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.
JFSP logo
This site provides searchable access to the JFSP-funded annotated bibliography "Forestry-based Biomass Economic and Financial Information and Tools."
Long Term Recovery
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.
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.
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.
Southwest Fire Science Consortium
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.
World of Wildland Fire banner logo
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.
