Southern Fire Portal

The Southern Fire Portal (SFP) provides information about fire science and technology relevant to the southern United States. This 13 state area includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia, as well as Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Our goal is to provide "one-stop shopping" for resource managers, decision makers, scientists, students, and communities who want access to the results of efforts to understand and manage fire and fuels on lands in the southern United States.

The SFP was initially funded by the Joint Fire Science Program in 2003, with the objectives of providing a gateway for ongoing information and technology transfer between the fire management and research communities and their publics, and to improve fire science organization and accessibility by integrating and expanding two comprehensive and complementary sources of fire information: FRAMES and the Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy E.V. Komarek Fire Ecology Database.

SFP partners included: Tall Timbers Research Station and Land Conservancy, Forest Encyclopedia Network, The Nature Conservancy, National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII), Joint Fire Science Program, Southern Region Extension Forestry, University of Idaho College of Natural Resources, USFS Southern Research Station, Southeast Fire Ecology Partnership.
