Select one of our focus areas to view complete and ongoing projects.
|Physical Fire Processes||The factors that determine fire behavior (fuel, weather, and topography) do so through the requirements for combustion (fuel, heat, and oxygen).|
|Fuel Dynamics||Research on fuel dynamics helps managers describe live and dead fuels that burn during wildland fires.|
|Smoke Emissions & Dispersion||Scientists use field observations, satellite data, and models to describe smoke’s chemical composition, its movement within a fire’s heat plume, and its movement through the layers of the atmosphere.|
|Fire Ecology||This research contributes to improved conservation, restoration of burned areas, and reduction of fire hazard.|
|Fire & Fuel Management Strategies||Historical patterns of wildland fire are combined with information about climate and vegetation to predict fire occurrence and vegetation patterns.|
|Science Synthesis & Delivery||Scientific publications form the foundation for science delivery.|
