    Description

    The Northern Rocky Mountain region is one of the most fire-prone regions in the United States. With a history of large fires that have shaped national policy, including the fires of 1910 and 2000 in Idaho and Montana and the Yellowstone fires of 1988, this region is projected to have many large severe fires in the future. Communication about fire science needs and science products is critical to effective, science-informed management. Despite the concentration of fire scientists and fire research in this region, land managers struggle to sort through available scientific information; find the right tools, models, and applications to make management decisions; and access expertise relevant to management questions.
