A not-for-profit organization with 80,000 citations for books, journal articles, videos, training manuals, dissertations, news reports, and other material on wildland fire. Moreover, the collection includes citations relevant to Hawaii and the Pacific. Contact the administrator, Jason Greenlee, for PDFs of non-copyrighted material
Browse completed and ongoing JFSP research projects, as well as archived Fire Science Digests, Briefs, and syntheses. A search feature allows for specific inquiry regarding Hawaii and the Pacific.
"The nation's most collaborative source of geospatial maps and data offering consistent and comprehensive landscape-scale data layers."
An excellent “one stop” website that acts as a portal to many fire logistics, education, and suppression resources. Includes fire news, situation reports, fire policy information, prevention/education materials, and fire safety information.
A searchable database of fire science for the Northwest region, including northern California. Provides summaries to and copies of many fire science articles.
Developed by Tall Timbers Research Station, this database includes over 27,000 citations for fire science and research literature including those relevant to Hawaii and the Pacific
The Program’s scientists, technicians and support staff conducts international work in wildland fire research from fire physics to fire ecology.
An excellent Forest Service site that provides links, fact sheets, and publications on many economic, environmental, and social aspects of fuel treatments and fire management.
Learned Center Includes summaries and analysis of accidents associated with wildland fire events.
Slideshow presentation by Dr. Andrew Pierce at the 2011 PFX Workshop on fuel mapping using plot-leveland multi-spectral data. He uses a sample site at Pohakuloa Training Area as a demonstration of the modeling technique. Goals of his work include: using "surface and canopy fuels maps to predict expected fire behaviors for PTA under current and future climate scenarios (warmer and/or drier)" and combining "fuels maps with threatened & endangered species locations to prioritize fuel and optimally locate treatments."
Slideshow presentation by Paul Hessburg and Keith Reynolds (U.S. Forest Service - Pacific Northwest Research Station) about a computer model that evaluates severe wildfire danger and provides a method for prioritizing watersheds for fuel treatments.
Provides free access to many different fire and fuels modeling software.
Provide regular updates and maps on current drought conditions for the state of Hawaii. A useful resource for determining and predicting fire behavior.
Presented By: Carnegie Institute; NASA Interactive mapping tool for monitoring near-current and historical vegetation fire risk conditions on Hawaii Island.
A national interagency website devoted to sharing information and transferring technology between wildland fire scientists, managers, and stakeholders. The most useful resources on the site can be found under the “Subject Areas” menu.
HWMO is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization "dedicated to education, outreach and technical assistance, project implementation, and research focused on wildfire prevention, mitigation and post-fire recovery in Hawaii and the Pacific." Website includes resources for Citizens, Educators, First Responders, Decision Makers, Fire Scientists, and Resource Managers. HWMO also offers a wide-range of its own unique products that are useful for all of the groups mentioned above.
An interagency research, development, and applications partnership between the US Department of the Interior and the US Department of Agriculture. Opportunities for JFSP research grants can be found under the “Announcements” area of the website.
