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.

Data catalog and scanned images for Anderson and Rothermel early fire behavior experiments

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains scanned photos from pivotal experiments conducted by Richard Rothermel and Hal Anderson at the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory from the early 1960s through the mid-1980s. The scans document early research that forms the foundation of fire spread and fire danger models used in the field to this day. It also contains a data catalog and finding aid for the hard copy data and files available for these experiments.

Detections of breeding birds in the Shoshone, Toiyabe, Toquima, and Monitor ranges, Nevada (2nd Edition)

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 2012, inclusive. Birds were detected during fixed-radius point counts. In most cases, each point was visited three times per season.

RxCADRE 2008, 2011, and 2012: Burn blocks

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This data publication contains three vector shapefiles of the burn blocks for the 2008, 2011, and 2012 Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE). These plots are located at Eglin Air Force Base, northeast of Valparaiso, Florida and at the Joseph Jones Ecological Research Center at Ichauway, near Camila, Georgia.

RxCADRE 2012: Airborne measurements of smoke emission and dispersion from prescribed fires

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
The Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) was designed to collect atmospheric, fuels, fire behavior, energy balance, emissions, and fire effects data to advance fire models and further our understanding of smoke emissions. This dataset covers 3 operational prescribed fires ignited at Eglin Air Force Base in 2012 as part of the RxCADRE research project.

Wildland fire emission factors database

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
Smoke emission factors (EFs) have been developed for a variety of wildland fuels beginning in the late 1960s. Many of these EFs have been presented in a variety of outlets and there is no centralized repository containing many of the EFs developed in the 1970s and 1980s.

Fire atlas for the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This fire atlas includes all 1972-2012 wildland fires at least 20 hectares (ha) or 50 acres in size that occurred within or intersected the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness (Montana and Idaho). There are two main components of this fire atlas; the first being a fire history shapefile depicting fire perimeters, and the second being raster files representing satellite-inferred burn severity for these fires.

Fire atlas for the Gila and Aldo Leopold Wilderness areas

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This fire atlas includes all 1972-2012 wildland fires at least 20 hectares (ha) or 50 acres in size that occurred within or intersected the Gila and Aldo Leopold Wilderness areas in New Mexico. There are two main components of this fire atlas; the first being a fire history shapefile depicting fire perimeters, and the second being raster files representing satellite-inferred burn severity for these fires.

Fire atlas for the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
This fire atlas includes all 1972-2012 wildland fires at least 20 hectares (ha) or 50 acres in size that occurred within or intersected the Frank Church - River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho. There are two main components of this fire atlas; the first being a fire history shapefile depicting fire perimeters, and the second being raster files representing satellite-inferred burn severity for these fires.
