Northwest Fire Science Consortium

Northwest Fire Science Consortium We provide a framework for the coordination of fire science delivery and a venue for increasing researcher understanding of the needs of practitioners.

The Northwest Fire Science Consortium (NWFSC) is part of a national network of consortia established by the Joint Fire Science Program to accelerate the awareness, understanding, and adoption of wildland fire science information by federal, tribal, state, local, and private stakeholders in Washington and Oregon.

Mission: • Improve information access, awareness and delivery of fire science in Washington and Oregon • Increase two-way communication between fire science research and fire science users • Promote opportunities for participatory and collaborative research • Evaluate the effectiveness of the Consortium and adapt

Webinar 5/27! Managing Fire for Water: Lessons Learned from Watershed Protection Partnerships for Wildfire Risk Reduction - https://mailchi.mp/5a9382535eff/a-fire-history-of-the-pnw-5997176

Among the values at risk from wildfire are community drinking water supplies, as forested watersheds on public land are often a primary or significant source of drinking water. In some places across the West, watershed protection partnerships have formed to address this threat by bringing together t...

Native Americans rely on tribally important ecosystem services such as traditional foods, hunting, timber production, non-timber forest resources (recreation, water), and cultural resources. Unfortunately, many of these resources may be highly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. A research....

Welcome! You are invited to join a webinar: Effects of scale on remote sensing assessments of burn severity in a ponderosa pine forests. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email about joining the webinar.

Coming up tomorrow 2/4 at 1pm PST! Effects of scale on remote sensing assessments of burn severity in a ponderosa pine forest. Register here, http://ow.ly/ECE150yc7Y5

This study sought to evaluate the effect of spatial scale in remotely assessing ground cover components measured one-year after the 2007 Egley Fire Complex of eastern Oregon, in a predominately ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forest. Spearman’s rank correlations were used to correlate the Normali...

Hello all, Can you please take out your 15-20 minutes of your time and fill up this survey that is related to WILDFIRE here in CALIFORNIA? I am a graduate student at University of California Merced conducting this research. https://ucmerced.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_byMvREwSIAwkkQt This research is mainly about community perception of wildfire risks and knowledge and support for the use of different fire management practices to mitigate the effects of wildfires. Your completion of survey will be highly appreciated. Thank you
Applications for the 2020 Urban Wild-F.I.R.E. (Fire Integrative Research Experience) Workshop at Michigan State University (MSU) are now open! Please IGNORE the Feb 7th posted deadline, as it will be extended to Feb 21st. The free 10-day workshop will link urban and community forestry with fire ecology and management. Applications are welcome from all, but undergraduate and graduate students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the fields (1994 and 1890 Land Grant Universities, other HBCUs, etc) are highly encouraged to apply. Please distribute widely!
Thanks for the great webinar!
