By Kori Blankenship, Anthony Beauchaine, Don Helmbrecht and Jeannie Patton Keeping fuel data current over time is an issue faced by many wildland fire managers. The landscape changes constantly – due to natural events like wildfires and hurricanes, and human activities, such as forest thinning, prescribed fire, and development – and such changes quickly render […]
New research examines smoke, resilience, drought and a range of other wildfire issues.

The first issue of 2015 features articles on sequestration, climate change, fire regimes and more.
From burn severity to needle flammability, from fire weather to human dimensions — the International Journal of Wildland Fire explores a wide range of fire science in its eighth issue of 2014.
From Indonesia to Botswana, from Scotland to North Carolina, peat mega-fires burn for months, destroy habitat, clog the air with haze, and self-accelerate climate change impacts. By Guillermo Rein Smouldering combustion is the slow, low temperature, flameless burning of porous fuels. It is especially common in wildland fuels which are thermally thick and form a […]
