Alaska Fire Science Consortium

  1. Powerpoint talk presented by Dr. Clay Blankenship, Universities Space Research Association (USRA)/NASA Short-Term Prediction Research and Transition (SPoRT).

    Presented at the University of Alaska Fairbanks on November 7th 2019.

    Soil moisture is a critical variable for agriculture and for predicting fire risk, and monitoring drought and water resources. As an influence on runoff from precipitation, it has a major effect on stream flow and flooding. Meteorologically, it influences the division between latent and sensible heating from solar radiation at the surface; hence it is an important initial condition for numerical weather models and for predicting diurnal heating, convective initiation, and precipitation. This talk includes an overview of land surface modeling with the NASA Land Information System. Some examples of using LIS to monitor or predict floods, fire risk, and drought are presented, along with potential applications for Alaska.

The AFSC is one of fifteen regional consortia supported by the Joint Fire Science Program and is part of a national fire science knowledge exchange network. Our primary purpose is to strengthen the link between fire science research and on-the-ground application by promoting communication between managers and scientists, providing an organized fire science delivery platform, and facilitating collaborative scientist-manager research development.
