Alaska EPSCoR - Boreal Fires team

Researchers on the Boreal Fires team are working to increase community resilience to wildfire by developing outlooks for subseasonal-to-seasonal fire risk, by modeling fire spread and severity, and by improving understanding of the economics of fire management and of impacts of wildfire to ecosystem services. Research will cover the entire Alaskan boreal (see map); some specific research will focus on the Bonanza Creek Long-term Ecological Research (LTER) site near Fairbanks and the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge outside of Anchorage, while other research locations will depend on the timing and location of wildfires during the project.
