Abstract

The U.S. Geological Survey’s Wildland Fire Science Program produces information to identify the causes of wildfires, understand the impacts and benefits of both wildfires and prescribed fires, and help prevent and manage larger, catastrophic events. USGS fire scientists provide information and develop tools that are widely used by stakeholders to make decisions before, during, and after wildfires in desert, grassland, tundra, wetland, and forest ecosystems across the United States. Active areas of research include—

  • Wildland fire behavior and risk management
  • Fire ecology, fire effects, and post-fire restoration of ecosystems
  • Risk assessments for human health, public safety, and the Nation’s infrastructure
  • Remote sensing and geospatial tools and data.
