Wildfire-driven forest conversion in western North American landscapes

November 18 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
SW Fire Science Consortium Logo

Webinar registration. Description: Changing disturbance regimes and climate can overcome forest ecosystem resilience. Following high-severity fire, forest recovery may be compromised by lack of tree seed sources, warmer and drier postfire climate, or short-interval reburning. A potential outcome of the loss of resilience is the conversion of the prefire forest to a different forest type or nonforest vegetation. Conversion implies major, extensive, and enduring changes in dominant species, life forms, or functions, with impacts on ecosystem services. The webinar will synthesize…

Potential Operational Delineations (PODs), what are they and how do they work on the ground?

November 19 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PST
SW Fire Science Consortium Logo

Webinar registration. A presentation on Potential Operational Delineations (PODs) from multiple perspectives including both scientists and managers. We will discuss how PODs were used in Northern New Mexico past fire seasons where PODS were utilized; with an emphasis on PODs as a fire planning tool, new developments in research and applications, and innovations within the planning framework.

Organizing community-based wildland fuels management projects: Approaches and examples

November 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm PST
Goat feeding on a tall forb

Workshop registration. The California Range Management Advisory Committee, an advisory body to the California Natural Resources Agency under the Board of Forestry and Fire Protection, is co-hosting a virtual workshop with the California Fire Science Consortium to discuss the use of prescribed livestock grazing as a sustainable fuel reduction and environmental management tool. Three separate workshops will be hosted on different topics as listed below. Each workshop will be followed by an optional virtual networking hour where participants can engage…

Radar and lidar observations of wildfire plume dynamics

November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm PST
Sage Steppe on fire

Webinar registration. Neil Lareau, an atmospheric scientist and assistant professor in the Department of Physics, will give a talk on radar and lidar observations of wildfire plume dynamics. It will include a discussion about how large, high-intensity wildfires can generate their own extreme weather, including fire-generated thunderstorms (i.e., pyrocumulonimbus) and rare fire-tornados.
