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.

Rapid advancements in wildland fire modeling are promoting innovations in how we characterize and map wildland fuels. Before these models can be widely used, more research on fuel characterization and mapping methods is needed to support 3D model inputs. The 3D Fuels Project is characterizing surfac...

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....

Hello! I’m doing research into mental wellbeing and factors related to su***de of wildland firefighters, and I could use your help. Wildland firefighters are almost completely unstudied when it comes to su***de, risk factors, and other mental health concerns. The research that I am doing is an important first step in understanding why wildland firefighters die by su***de, as well as what other difficulties they may be facing. While there is no direct compensation for participating in this study, your participation would provide valuable data for our study. Anyone who currently is, or ever was, a wildland firefighter is welcome to participate in this project. All of your answers are kept completely confidential and will not be shared with anyone in your family, workplace, or your personal doctor. We will not be attaching your answers to your personal identity in any way. This research has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at Oklahoma State University. If you’re interested in participating, have questions about eligibility, or would like to know more, please send me a direct message on here or an email at [email protected]. Thank you for taking the time to read this! To participate, please click on the link below:
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!
