A wildfire risk assessment framework for land and resource management

Publications Posted on: June 07, 2018
Wildfires can result in significant, long-lasting impacts to ecological, social, and economic systems. It is necessary, therefore, to identify and understand the risks posed by wildland fire, and to develop cost-effective mitigation strategies accordingly. This report presents a general framework with which to assess wildfire risk and explore mitigation options, and illustrates a process for implementing the framework.

A comparison of landscape planning approaches and practices for strategic fuel management in southern Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the USA

Publications Posted on: October 07, 2011
Landscape planning to reduce fire risk, hazard, and impacts, includes different components such as fire detection and prevention, the location of fire suppression resources and infrastructure (e.g. roads, water supply, equipment depots), and the implementation of a mosaic of strategically located fuel managed areas.

Spatial and temporal corroboration of a fire-scar-based fire history in a frequently burned ponderosa pine forest

Publications Posted on: March 18, 2011
Fire scars are used widely to reconstruct historical fire regime parameters in forests around the world. Because fire scars provide incomplete records of past fire occurrence at discrete points in space, inferences must be made to reconstruct fire frequency and extent across landscapes using spatial networks of fire-scar samples.
