Workshop #12 – Fuels Treatment Effectiveness: Joint Fire Science Workshop for Current Research, Preliminary Results and Implications

(For JFSP PI’s, by invitation)

Sponsored by Joint Fire Science Program

From 2012 – 2015 JFSP has, through five funding opportunity notices, funded 27 research projects  focused on multiple aspects of fuels treatment effectiveness.  In 2014 OWF partnered with JFSP to fund 5 research projects. The majority of these  projects are currently in progress. This workshop is targeted towards these researchers and is intended to provide a forum to share interim results, identify opportunities for continued or future collaboration and to identify future research needs.  This will be a “working workshop” for researchers with active research.  Participants will be invited to participate by JFSP and OWF.

Workshop Objectives:

  • Share interim results on fuels treatment effectiveness research with funding organizations and between researchers
  • Identify opportunities for collaboration on on-going research projects
  • Identify future fuels treatment effectiveness research needs
  • Facilitate coordination between researchers and fire science exchange network principal investigators and coordinators in preparation for dissemination of research results.
