Conifer regeneration following stand-replacing wildfire varies along an elevation gradient in a ponderosa pine forest, Oregon, USA
Climate change is expected to increase disturbances such as stand-replacing wildfire in many ecosystems, which have the potential to drive rapid turnover in ...
Cumulative Effects of Fire and Fuels Management on Stream Water Quality and Ecosystem Dynamics
Prescribed fires and wildland fire-use are increasingly important management tools used to reduce fuel loads and restore the ecological integrity of western ...
Climate change and disruptions to global fire activity
Future disruptions to fire activity will threaten ecosystems and human well-being throughout the world, yet there are few fire projections at global scales and ...
Characterizing Fire-on-Fire interactions in three Large Wilderness areas
The interaction of fires, where one fire burns into another recently burned area, is receiving increased attention from scientists and land managers wishing to ...
Contingent Pacific-Atlantic Ocean influence on multicentury wildfire synchrony over western North America
Widespread synchronous wildfires driven by climatic variation, such as those that swept western North America during 1996, 2000, and 2002, can result in major ...
CLIMATE’S SMOKY SPECTRE
With their focus on greenhouse gases, atmospheric scientists have largely overlooked lowly soot particles. But black carbon is now a hot topic among ...
Carbon loss from an unprecedented Arctic tundra wildfire
Arctic tundra soils store large amounts of carbon (C) in organic soil layers hundreds to thousands of years old that insulate, and in some cases maintain, ...
Coupling of Vegetation Growing Season Anomalies and Fire Activity with Hemispheric and Regional-Scale Climate Patterns in Central and East Siberia
An 18-yr time series of the fraction of absorbed photosynthetically active radiation (fAPAR) taken in by the green parts of vegetation data from the NOAA ...
A new, global, multi-annual (2000–2007) burnt area product at 1 km resolution Vol. 35
This paper reports on the development and validation of a new, global, burnt area product. Burnt areas are reported at a resolution of 1 km for seven fire ...
Don't Blame the Beetles
Bark beetles have devastated western forests, but that may not mean more severe fires.
Medieval warming initiated exceptionally large wildfire outbreaks in the Rocky Mountains
Many of the largest wildfires in US history burned in recent decades, and climate change explains much of the increase in area burned. The frequency of extreme ...
Reform forest fire management: Agency incentives undermine policy effectiveness
Globally, wildfire size, severity, and frequency have been increasing, as have related fatalities and taxpayer- funded firefighting costs (1). In most ...
Palaeodata-informed modelling of large carbon losses from recent burning of boreal forests
Wildfires play a key role in the boreal forest carbon cycle(1,2), and models suggest that accelerated burning will increase boreal C emissions in the coming ...
Pedoecological Modeling to Guide Forest Restoration using Ecological Site Descriptions
the u.s. department of agriculture (usda)-natural resources conservation service (nrcs) uses an ecological site description (esd) framework to help incorporate ...
How the South Fights Fire with Fire, and What the West Can Learn
Most years Georgia intentionally burns around a million acres of forest. That’s about 30 times the size of California’s prescribed burns. Florida performs ...
