Applying innovative science and technology to on-the-ground natural resource management
The National Center for Landscape Fire Analysis, a program in the College of Forestry and Conservation at the University of Montana, Missoula, links scientific and technological developments with wildland fire and land management. Since
2001, the Center has developed applications, technology, and research to
help natural resource managers. The Center develops applications to help
managers access and use data more efficiently; conducts research to
characterize fire and fuels; provides direct incident support; and offers
classes, trainings, and other learning opportunities to develop a highly
skilled current and future fire workforce.
Casey Teske will present her research discussing the "Interactions of Fire-on-Fire' at the Fire Lab Thursday, November 29th from 11:00am-12:00pm (MST). Read More >>
