Solar radiation grids were produced for a set of large fires sampled from within the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative study area. This solar radiation grid was produced using the Area Solar Radiation tool in ArcGIS 10.1, using inputs of the associated 30m DEM.

Wildfire and fuel treatment locations for the USFWS Pacific Southwest Region (California, Nevada, Klamath Basin OR) extracted from the Fire Management Information System (FMIS) on October 23, 2015, for fiscal years 1980-2015.

Mountain streams provide important habitats for many species, but their faunas are especially vulnerable to climate change because of ectothermic physiologies and movements that are constrained to linear networks that are easily fragmented. Effectively conserving biodiversity in these systems requires accurate downscaling of climatic trends to local habitat conditions, but downscaling is difficult in complex terrains given diverse microclimates and mediation of stream heat budgets by local conditions. We compiled a stream temperature database (n = 780) for a 2500-km river network in central Idaho to assess possible trends in summer temperatures and thermal habitat for two native salmonid species from 1993 to 2006....

This imagery was collected and produced for a set of large fires sampled from within the Great Northern Landscape Conservation Cooperative study area. This imagery and associated metrics was produced using Landsat 5 and 7. This set of imagery and remote sensing metrics have the following file structure: 1. Each sub-folder in the Fires LC Map folder represents an individual fire. 2. Within the zip folder there are 5 raster tiffs. i. XXX_post_refl.tif The at-sensor-reflectance of the postfire landsat scene, named with the PolyID unique identifier for the fire, stored in 8-bit ii. XXX_pre_refl.tif The at-sensor-reflectance of the prefire landsat scene, named with the PolyID unique identifier for the...

Wildfire can significantly alter the hydrologic response of a watershed to the extent that even modest rainstorms can produce dangerous flash floods and debris flows. The USGS conducts post-fire debris-flow hazard assessments for select fires in the Western U.S. We use geospatial data related to basin morphometry, burn severity, soil properties, and rainfall characteristics to estimate the probability and volume of debris flows that may occur in response to a design storm.

In Alaska, recent research has identified particular areas of the state where both a lack of soil moisture and warming temperatures increase the likelihood of wildfire. While this is an important finding, this previous research did not take into account the important role that melting snow, ice, and frozen ground (permafrost) play in replenshing soil moisture in the spring and summer months. This project will address this gap in the characterization of fire risk using the newly developed monthly water balance model (MWBM). The MWBM takes into account rain, snow, snowmelt, glacier ice melt, and the permafrost layer to better calculate soil moisture replenishment and the amount of moisture that is lost to the atmosphere...
