Westside fire research initiative.
Teams shared their research plans for three priority topics: 1) historical, contemporary, and future fire regimes; 2) fuel management; and 3) postfire management. They also let stakeholders know how they can get involved.
This workshop is a first step in bringing together scientists, land stewards, and policymakers for collaborative and productive discussions on improving the relevance of our carbon science.
The Ecosystem Management Decision Support (EMDS) system is a state-of-the-art application framework for designing and modeling spatially enabled decision support systems. EMDS supports the environmental analysis and planning functions at all geographic scales and resolutions.
