Alaska Joint Fire Science Consortium Presentations Published

The Alaska Fire Science Consortium has published materials from several activities earlier in 2017.

The Alaska Joint Fire Science Consortium has published several presentations from their conference and workshops earlier this year, “Opportunities to Apply Remote Sensing in Boreal/Arctic Wildfire Management and Science.”

Opportunities to Apply Remote Sensing in Boreal/Arctic Wildfire Management and Science
Workshop speakers included:
Bud Cribley, Everett Hinkley, Wilfrid Schroeder, Nancy French, Dan Thompson and many more.

2017 Spring Alaska Fire Science Workshop
Workshop speakers included:
Joe Little, Winslow Hansen, Colin McFayden, Paul Duffy and Courtney Schultz

Climate change: is it really human-caused, and should we worry about it? What does it mean for the future of fire in Alaska?
Webinar speaker:
Heidi Strader, AICC Predictive Services

Implications of threshold relationships for projecting fire-regime responses to climate change
Webinar speaker:
Adam Young, University of Idaho

In addition, the Fire Behavior and Modeling Group is leading a revision of the 2008 Fuel Model Guide. When complete, the revised guide will include better photo documentation, more fire behavior comments, suggestions for alternate fuel models to use under different conditions, and help with characterizing post-fire habitats. The team hopes to finalize the revision in fall 2017.
