  4. The Alaska Fire Modeling and Analysis Committee's Spring Refresher webinar presented by Chris Moore and Robert (Zeke) Ziel.

    Chris presented a case study of the analysis work on the 2020 Isom Creek fire, and the elements of the new guide on Fire Analysis in Alaska: A Quick Reference. Zeke presented on Landscape Hazard, Threat, and Exposure Estimation. On a basic level, we know where and why many of our fires burn the way that they do on our boreal landscape. Zeke will share a simple way to leverage that knowledge into maps of hazard and threat to help identify what values may be most exposed.

  5. Presented by Nancy HF French and Michael Billmire, Michigan Tech Research Institute

    AFSC webinar, May 6, 2021.

    The Wildland Fire Emissions Inventory System (WFEIS) came out of a NASA Applied Science program focused on creating maps of regional-scale wildland fire carbon emissions using the Consume emissions model and the Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCS) for describing fuelbeds. As these tools have evolved, WFEIS has too, with more emphasis on pollution emissions, as well as finer scale emissions maps. In this AFSC webinar Nancy and Michael reviewed the basics of WFEIS, its overlap with other fire decision-support tools, and recent updates to its functionality and utility for decision-making. They provided a general idea of when WFEIS can help in your assessment of fire emissions, and answered questions about the system and its new functionality.
