Quantifying the effectiveness and longevity of wildland fire as a fuel treatment

Projects Posted on: January 22, 2015
This project will quantify the effectiveness of wildland fire as a fuel treatment in terms of its ability to limit the occurrence, size, and severity of subsequent fires. In addition, we will quantify the longevity of these effects and evaluate how extreme weather may diminish the ability of wildland fire to act as a fuel treatment.
