BAER Burned Area Reports DB is a database containing post-fire assessment information from four decades of US Forest Service Burned Area Reports (FS 2500-8 forms). We have compiled information from approximately 1500 reports and other information when available, mostly from the western U.S., into the database. New reports are added annually.
RMRS Raster Utility is an object oriented coding library that facilitates a wide range of spatial and statistical analysis using our newly developed Function Modeling framework. Our library focuses on significantly reducing processing time and storage space associated with analyzing large datasets and has an easy to use graphical user interface, packaged as an ESRI add-in toolbar. The RMRS Raster Utility toolbar plugs directly into ESRI's ArcMap...
FuelCalc is a fuel characteristics simulation software program that calculates initial canopy fuel characteristics and quickly simulates the effects of thinning, pruning, piling and broadcast burning on ground, surface and canopy fuel characteristics.
The Fire Effects Information System (FEIS) provides synthesized scientific knowledge about fire effects on organisms in the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, so managers can easily find and better apply science to land management decisions.
FS WEPP is a set of interfaces designed to allow users to quickly evaluate erosion and sediment delivery potential from forest roads. The erosion rates and sediment delivery are predicted by the Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) model, using input values for forest conditions.
The SAVS uses an online questionnaire with 22 criteria to predict vulnerability or population response of species to provide a framework for assessing vulnerability to future climate change
The Arc Habitat Suitability Index is a geographical information system (GIS) model that estimates the ability of an area to meet the food and cover requirements of an animal species. ArcHSI is a tool intended to inform planners of the probable impacts on wildlife for the alternatives they develop. It is a tool that should augment, not supplant, the expertise of resource specialists with site-specific knowledge.
NorWeST aggregates stream temperature data from the Northwestern U.S. into a stream temperature database, and uses the data to develop stream temperature models.
The Geomorphic Road Analysis and Inventory Package (GRAIP) is a comprehensive free road inventory and modeling tool used to analyze the hydrogeomorphic impacts of roads on forested watersheds and to help land managers efficiently evaluate the multiple aspects of risk created by forest roads. GRAIP combines a detailed field road inventory and powerful GIS analysis tools to predict the amount and location of road sediment production and delivery,...
Thermal regimes are important to aquatic ecosystems because they strongly dictate species distributions, productivity, and abundance. Inexpensive digital temperature loggers, geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing technologies, and new spatial analyses are facilitating the development of temperature models and monitoring networks applicable at broad spatial scales. This web site provides a mapping tool to help those in the western...
