Enhancing fire science exchange: The Joint Fire Science Program's National Network of Knowledge Exchange Consortia

Publications Posted on: October 06, 2011
The Northern Rocky Mountain region is one of the most fire-prone regions in the United States. With a history of large fires that have shaped national policy, including the fires of 1910 and 2000 in Idaho and Montana and the Yellowstone fires of 1988, this region is projected to have many large severe fires in the future. Communication about fire science needs and science products is critical to effective, science-informed management.
