  • Story Map: "A New Normal"for West-Side Fire. Learn more about the expected impacts of climate change on west-side forests in Oregon and Washington and how the U.S. Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station's West-Side Fire Research Initiative is working to provide needed information and tools to managers and decision makers.
  • These Lands: The Northwest Climate Hub Podcast. A quarterly podcast focused on creative and engaging delivery of regionally relevant climate change adaptation information. Episodes dig into pressing regional climate adaptation issues and highlight useful resources, tools, and science.
  • Post-fire Salvage Logging Science Series. The publications and media in this hot topic address the effects of salvage logging on plants, biodiversity, and cavity-nesting birds. They also cover a range of research that includes the ecological impacts of salvage logging; the effects of salvage logging on soil, sediment production, mountain pine beetles, and riparian systems.

From the News:

  • Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) Funding Opportunity Announcement. The interagency Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) intends to request proposals through one or more formal Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) beginning approximately July 2021 and remaining open 60 days. Proposals will be accepted for research on “social and ecological recovery of communities impacted by wildfire” and “collaborative development of ecosystem mapping products for fire and fuels management.”
