Biomass Ready App

Visit the Biomass Ready App website.

Biomass Ready is a quick and easy process to help teams design new community buildings that can better adapt to an uncertain energy future. Today the economics of biomass may not be favorable, but your community will own and operate your new building for decades, perhaps even a century. Over the lifetime of your building, your community may decide to install a biomass boiler system. Will your building be ready? Biomass Ready will help you avoid inadvertently creating barriers that make adding biomass in the future prohibitively expensive. If you can add a biomass system to your building without extensive deconstruction or demolition, your building is Biomass Ready.  And Biomass Ready is simple enough that you can include it in your RFP (Request for Proposals) process – encouraging your bidders to compete on designing for future energy flexibility!

Smoke Sense App

Access App

EPA researchers initiated a citizen science project called Smoke Sense. This project has two broad objectives. The first to increase awareness of the known health effects associated with exposure to wildfire smoke. The second is to further advance the scientific understanding of that relationship, specifically to:

  1. Understand the subclinical health impacts of wildland fire smoke
  2. Discover how people protect their health during smoke exposure
  3. Develop effective strategies to communicate health risks from smoke exposure

Individuals who want to contribute to science can participate in the study by using the Smoke Sense app, a publicly available mobile application on the Google Play Store and the App Store.

Rangeland Analysis Platform

Access RAP App.

The Rangeland Analysis Platform (RAP) is an innovative online mapping tool that can be used by anyone—no fees or registration required. The tool provides quick snapshots of rangeland vegetation. It allows users to easily compare trends in rangeland resources through time at a ranch, county, or watershed scale.

The RAP includes a data layer of annual herbaceous cover across rangelands of the sagebrush biome.

Ecoregional Revegetation Application (ERA)

Access application and maps.

The ERA Tool is a map-based, searchable application to select native plants for restoration and pollinator habitat enhancement by US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Level III Ecoregions. Since ecoregions are areas of similar climate and topography that contain characteristic, geographically distinct assemblages of natural communities and species, they are an ideal organizing unit for selecting plants for restoration. State floras, on the other hand, have many species that only occur in some ecoregions and are not appropriate choices for restoration elsewhere.

Contact: Mark Skinner, USDA Forest Service, 503-312-1656, [email protected]

The ERA is part of a comprehensive national revegetation learning project called Roadside Revegetation: An Integrated Approach to Establishing Native Plants and Pollinator Habitat. Learn more

Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal – Utah Department of Natural Resources

Access portal.

The Utah Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal is the primary mechanism for Utah Division of Forestry, Fire, and State Lands to deploy wildfire risk information and create awareness about wildfire issues across the state. It is comprised of a suite of applications tailored to support specific workflow and information requirements for the public, local community groups, private landowners, government officials, hazard-mitigation planners, and wildland fire managers. Collectively these applications will provide the baseline information needed to support mitigation and prevention efforts across the state.
