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.
Slideshow presentation by Francis M. Fujioka (U.S. Forest Service - Pacific Southwest Research Station) on fire weather, danger, and behavior prediction in Hawaii. The presentation includes information on the history of the Hawaii fire danger rating, the current Hawaii Fire Danger Rating System, fire weather modeling, and fire behavior prediction for Hawaii.
Provide regular updates and maps on current drought conditions for the state of Hawaii. A useful resource for determining and predicting fire behavior.
Climate and weather resources for the State of Hawaii from a variety of sources including NOAA, National Weather Service, and Western Regional Climate Center
Presented By: Carnegie Institute; NASA Interactive mapping tool for monitoring near-current and historical vegetation fire risk conditions on Hawaii Island.
Real-time updated interactive map that displays weather data by weather station.
Presented By: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; National Weather Service Regularly updated interactive maps that forecast fire weather.
Regularly updated weather maps and forecasts that can be sorted by region.
Collection of real-time maps including current HMS Fire and Smoke Analysis maps and Satellite Imagery Loops.
