Research and Publications Database

The NRFSN research and publications database leads users to regionally relevant fire science. There are more than 2,200 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.

Smoke Management and Air Quality for Land Managers is meant for those who are looking for a tutorial on smoke management and air quality. The refresher is comprised of four lessons, each of which can be completed in about half an hour; however, links and interactions allow further investigation of several topics.

Fuel Loading Models (FLMs) and Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCSs) fuelbeds are used throughout wildland fire science and management to simplify fuel inputs into fire behavior and effects models, but they have yet to be thoroughly evaluated with field data. In this study, we used a large...

Wildfire often results in striking changes to the landscape and consequently we historically considered that it would have negative effects on and pose serious risk to trout populations in the West. But to date, empirical evidence of negative effects on fish populations from wildfire has been equivocal. The immediate effects of fire...

This 1-hour webinar discussed US fire policy as a complex problem that exists at the intersection of social and ecological realms and involves multiple temporal and spatial scales. Dr. Steelman uniquely describes the problem in this context and presents various response scenarios based on her research.

For several months during 2011, wildfires throughout the Southwest Area and Mexico caused air quality impacts on public health across the region, with significant impacts measured hundreds of miles away from individual wildfires. In order to address the emerging issue, a concerted multi-state interagency air quality coordination...

LANDFIRE fuel and fire regime products are based almost entirely on various combinations of existing and potential vegetation themes. Since LANDFIRE National's initial release in 2008, a number of revisions to these themes have been implemented both from a mapping and a classification standpoint. In addition, a large amount of...

Ever wish you could be out on the ground watching how fire behaves over the terrain, in different fuels with effects from weather, then use that experience to try and replicate what you saw and predict what will happen tomorrow? Well the Fire Behavior Analyst job is for you. Learn what it's like to be able to watch Mother Nature at...

WFAT provides an interface between ArcMap, FlamMap 5, and the First Order Fire Effects Model (FOFEM), combining their strengths into a spatial fire behavior and fire effects analysis tool in GIS. In the webinar, you will learn how to use WFAT to locate potential fuel treatment units, develop a prescription for those units, and...

A 13-minute presentation recorded in February 2009 as part of Effective Communication for Smoke Management in a Changing Air Quality Environment. This presentation defines and describes the constituents of smoke which impact human health. An example of wildland fire smoke affecting the health of a community is examined.
