Research and Publications Database

The NRFSN research and publications database leads users to regionally relevant fire science. There are more than 2,900 documents, which have been carefully categorized by the NRFSN to highlight topics and ecosystems important in the Northern Rockies Region. Categorized resources include records from the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP), Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES), and Fire Effects Information System (FEIS).

Note: Additional Northern Rockies fire research is available from our Webinar & Video Archive.

Hints: By default, the Search Terms box reads and searches for terms as if there were AND operators between them. To search for one or more terms, use the OR operator. Use quotation marks around phrases or to search for exact terms. To maximize the search function, use the Search Terms box for other information (e.g. author(s), date, species of interest, additional fire topics) together with the topic, ecosystem, and/or resource type terms from the lists. Additional information is available in our documents on topics, ecosystems, and types.

It is generally assumed that severe disturbances predispose damaged forests to high fire hazard by creating heavy fuel loading conditions. Of special concern is the perception that surface fuel loadings become high as killed trees deposit foliage and woody material on the ground. These high fuel loadings may result in abnormally...

LANDFIRE products have become the toolbox for large landscape management, way beyond obvious applications to do with fire and fuels. From mapping arbuscular fungi to modeling scary cryptic zooid habitat, from tracking grizzly bears to protecting butterflies, from developing full-scale state forest assessments to looking at climate...

The objectives of quantifying canopy fuels is to develop practical, validated methods for obtaining quantitative estimates of canopy fuel characteristics, notably bulk density, crown height, and fuel loading, all needed to predict fire behavior and fire effects.

Mapping evidence of historical and potential wildfire for climate change and fuels mitigation in the montane forests of the Colorado Front Range. Rosemary Sherriff, Associate Professor, Humboldt State University. Recorded talk from 2013 Restoring the West Conference at Utah State University. The conference focused on forest...

Understanding fine-scale variability in understory fuels is increasingly important as physics-based fire behavior models are driving needs for higher resolution data. Describing fuelbeds three dimensionally is critical in determining vertical and horizontal distributions of fuel elements and the mass, especially...
