Cohesive Strategy Potential topics directly and indirectly support
the three goals of the 2014 National
Cohesive Wildland Fire Management Strategy:
* Resilient Landscapes
â€¢ Fire Adapted Communities
â€¢ Safe and Effective Wildfire Response
FON 1- Primary
- Landscape fuel treatment as a fire management strategy
- Effects of wildfire as a treatment
- Post-fire recovery
- Fire effects on herbaceous species, shrubs, and seed banks
- Validating mesoscale, atmospheric boundary prediction models and tools
- Factors that affect the co-management of fire â€œriskâ€
FON 2 - Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) Award
In partnership with the Association for Fire Ecology, we will likely continue the Graduate Research Innovation (GRIN) program for current MS and PhD. students in the fields of wildland fire and related disciplines.
FON 3 - Fire and Smoke Model Evaluation Experiment (FASMEE)
In partnership with the DOD Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), previously initiated planning for the Fire and Smoke Model Evaluation Experiment (FASMEE; Phase 1). It is anticipated that the JFSP fall 2016 FON will include an open solicitation for proposals to participate in Phase 2â€”data collection, data archival, and initial model evaluationâ€”of FASMEE. In brief, this experiment is being designed as a large-scale field campaign to:
- develop and apply relevant measurement/data collection techniques at different spatial and temporal scales;
- provide resultant critical observational data necessary to evaluate and advance operationally used and next generation fire and smoke modeling systems; and
- provide data to support the underlying scientific basis for fire and smoke models.
