Wildland Fire Potential (WFP) for the conterminous United States (270-m GRID), version 2012 classified

Datasets Posted on: November 24, 2015
The wildland fire potential (WFP) map is a raster geospatial product produced by the USDA Forest Service, Fire Modeling Institute that is intended to be used in analyses of wildfire risk or hazardous fuels prioritization at large landscapes (100s of square miles) up through regional or national scales.

Using prescribed fire to reduce the risk of smoke related traffic problems on I-95

Publications Posted on: September 29, 2015
In many areas of the United States, prescribed burning near highways is considered too risky because of the potential for smoke to obscure the highway. In one area in Florida, prescribed fire is used to reduce the risks of smoke related impacts to Interstate 95. The St Johns River Water Management District manages over 400,000 acres of land.

Fort Valley Experimental Forest

Experimental Forests and Ranges Posted on: September 09, 2015
The first Forest Service research facility established in the Nation, the Fort Valley Experimental Forest (formerly the Coconino Experiment Station) opened in August 1908. Researchers past and present at Fort Valley have studied natural and artificial regeneration, stand improvement, sample plots, climate—everything that might influence a tree throughout its life.

Santa Fe Watershed Fuels Reduction Project: Avian Point Counts

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
Data were collected during a fuels reduction project conducted by the Santa Fe National Forest in the Santa Fe Municipal Watershed from 2002 to 2007. Fuel reduction includes mechanical thinning, burning of piles and broadcast burning though only a small portion of the study area was burned during wildlife monitoring. In addition to areas thinned, we collected data in adjacent areas that were not actively managed.

Data product for "Influence of a native legume on soil N and plant response following prescribed fire in sagebrush steppe"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
We examined the effects of prescribed fire and legume presence in Underdown Canyon located in the central Great Basin, Nevada, USA. We examined three treatments - one year post-burn, three years post-burn and unburned control in three replicate blocks. Within each treatment we measured density, biomass, cover, and nutrient content of a native legume, Lupinus argenteus (Pursh).

Vegetation response to prescribed fire in the Shoshone mountains of Nevada

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data product contains measurements of understory vegetation following spring prescribed fire in the Shoshone Mountain Range of central Nevada on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in Nye and Lander Counties.

Detections of breeding birds in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
These data document annual detections of breeding birds in canyons throughout four mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander, Nye, and Eureka counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, Toquima Range, and Monitor Range. Data were collected from 2001 through 2009, inclusive. Birds were detected during fixed-radius point counts. Each point was visited three times per season.

The Fire Management Deep Smarts Project: interviews with key people involved with the Yellowstone fires of 1988 and with experts in returning natural fire to wilderness and National Park Service lands

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains transcripts from 74 videotaped or audiotaped interviews of highly experienced wildland fire managers that were conducted between 2006 and 2009. These experts have extensive expertise in prescribed fire, fire behavior prediction and wildland fire use.

Airborne and Lidar measurements of smoke plume rise, emissions, and dispersion

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication consists of measurements of smoke plume rise, emissions, and dispersion in and around eight wildfires in the western United States and prescribed fires in California, Idaho, and North Carolina. Eleven wildland fires were investigated between August 2009 and August 2011, allowing the research team to measure plume rise and smoke transport over a wide range of meteorological conditions, fire activity, fuels, and terrain.

Incidental and long-distance bird observations in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
These data document observations of birds, mostly in canyons and a small proportion in intervening valleys, throughout four mountain ranges in the central Great Basin (Lander, Nye, and Eureka counties, Nevada): the Shoshone Mountains, Toiyabe Range, Toquima Range, and Monitor Range. Data were collected from 2002 through 2012, inclusive.
