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.

This 22 minute video covers what suppression tactics should be based on, including firefighter and public safety, resource benefits, minimum costs, and resource objectives. Past firefighting protection policy primarily emphasized the need to extinguish all wildland fire ignitions. Today's policy offers a full...

FlamMap is a fire behavior mapping and analysis program that computes potential fire behavior characteristics (spread rate, flame length, fireline intensity, etc.) over an entire FARSITE landscape for constant weather and fuel moisture conditions. Since 2006 FlamMap3 has been widely used by the U.S. Forest Service, National Park...

Do you use belt weather kits or electronic handheld weather meters for measuring temperature and relative humidity in the field? Which device do you trust? Belt weather kits for obtaining weather information on prescribed fires and wildfires have been in use since the 1960’s and the use of sling psychrometers from these kits has...

Fire.org is the home page of Systems for Environmental Management, a Montana nonprofit research and educational corporation. For over 29 years we've specialized in issues concerning wildland fire planning, behavior, fuel, weather, and effects. Here we post many of the publications and software packages we've developed in cooperation...

Wildland fuels may be the most important consideration in fire management, not just because they are important inputs for predicting fire behavior (i.e., how fast and intense a fire gets), but also because fuels are the only factor that can effectively be controlled by direct and indirect management manipulation.In this webinar, Bob...

In October 1997, I attended a conference in Park City, Utah on the Future of Wildland Fire Research. Billed as 'an experiment, a beginning,' this seminal workshop developed action plans to create an interdepartmental competitive grants program, a coordinated response to managing fire regimes for ecosystem health, and a framework for...

Becoming a fire-adapted community that can live with wildfire is envisioned as a continuous, iterative process of adaptation. We combined national and case study research to examine how experience with wildfire alters the built environment and community- and government-level wildfire mitigation, planning, and regulations. By...
