Spring/Summer Webinar Series

Fine Scale, Big Scale: Wildland Fire Dynamics Research for Informed Management

REGISTER HERE FOR SERIES REMINDERS

NAFSE is excited to offer this series of webinars focused on cutting-edge research in wildland fire dynamics. From fine fuels to wind tunnels, from field experiments to smoke models, this series will relate foundational research to operational management tools. This interactive webinar series covers research funded by the Department of Defense Strategic Research and Development Program, the Joint Fire Science program, and the USDA Forest Service Northern Research Station.
