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.

Since late 2015, a one dimensional model of snow pack structure, know as SNOWPACK, has been evaluated by the National Weather Service at Missoula, in collaboration with Montana State University. The model is driven by point-based output from a high-resolution numerical model (WRF-ARW).Hourly forecasts of incoming radiation,...

Terrestrial carbon cycle models, or dynamic global vegetation models (DGVMs), have long been used to estimate biogeochemical and biophysical feedbacks to climate. At their core, DGVMs represent vegetation and landscape dynamics using process-based representations of photosynthesis, carbon allocation, stand...

Drought imposes many tangible impacts on human food and water supplies, but the effects of drought can actually go much deeper. Long periods without rainfall can alter the delicate balance of natural ecosystems and harm many fish and wildlife species. The term “ecological drought” encompasses and emphasizes these environmental...

This webinar discussed the following - 1) Foliar moisture content changes are driven by changes in density, 2) Density changes are primarily due to an increase in starch, 3) Starch content may be the missing link in the increased flammability during the Spring Dip, 4) Density or LFM can be measured throughout the...

The LANDFIRE Program collaborated with experts across the country for more than a decade to create a unique product describing the characteristics and basic ecology of hundreds of ecosystems. This product, known as the Biophysical Settings (BpS) Descriptions and Models, consists of two components: 1) a quantitative state-and-...

Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity (MTBS) is a multi-year, interagency project designed to consistently map the location, extent and associated burn severity of large fires occurring on all lands of the United States from 1984 to present. The suite of mapping, data and analysis products facilitated by the project are derived from...

This seminar focuses on how plants burn and where and under what conditions. It is a mixture of plant physiology and combustion characteristics, and understanding why plants burn at certain times. The talk was presented by W. Matt Jolly (USFS Missoula Fire Lab), and presented as part of the 2012 RMRS Fire Sciences Laboratory's...
