Ellen Eberhardt works within the Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team (FERA) to make information available at all levels, from the local research community to the international fire management community. The research of her team can be found on the FERA website.
Ellen Eberhardt's goal is to make fire, fuels, and climate change research knowledge available to a wide audience, while focusing on decisionmakers, land managers, and the international fire research community.
Science knowledge transfer involves a complex series of pathways. Accurately explaining the developing science to a wide variety of interested parties, creating high-quality ways to teach users when and how to use tools and publications, and working on a variety of media at many scales (newsletters, governmental exhibits and fairs, web sites, etc.) are some ways to help to transfer new research on fire, fuels, and climate change. The transfer of this knowledge is key to improving the ability of land managers and citizens to make decisions informed by the best possible science.
