Title: Post-Fire Treatment Effectiveness, Synthesizing 10 Years of Knowledge

Project Proposal Abstract: Escalating costs of post-fire emergency stabilization treatments and the lack of available treatment effectiveness information were recently highlighted in two Government Accounting Office reports. Research and monitoring results from the past decade are providing the needed data to determine treatment effectiveness; however this information is published in various international journals and reports that are not easily accessed by Emergency Stabilization and Restoration (ES & R), and Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) Teams while on assignment. There is a compelling need to summarize and provide post-fire treatment effectiveness information in easy-to-use formats that are readily available to land managers making treatment decisions. We propose to provide a synthesis of existing knowledge of post-fire stabilization and rehabilitation treatment effectiveness (JFSP task 2008-2) by summarizing recent monitoring and research results. These results will be compiled by treatment and eco-regions within the United States and published in a written format and posted on our web page as a searchable database. Both the PI and Co-PI have extensive experience in summarizing and disseminating research results to land managers who provide post-fire assessments and make treatment decisions.
