The Missoula Fire Lab offers a series of seminars which highlight the Fire, Fuel, and Smoke Science Program's six Focus Areas. The focus areas consist of research on Physical Fire Processes, Fuel Dynamics, Smoke Emissions and Dispersion, Fire Ecology, Fire and Fuel Management Strategies, and Science Synthesis and Delivery.
The purpose of the weekly Fire Lab Seminar Series is to reveal emerging and relevant fire science activities in a collegial setting that encourages critical thought, the exchange of ideas, and discovery. Our weekly seminars provide a platform for staff, colleagues, and collaborators to present their work in a learning environment, and the seminars offer all of us a venue for indulging in an hour of professional enrichment.
The seminars are offered on Thursdays from 11:00-12:00 p.m. Mountain Time. The seminar season kicks off October 2012.
