01-1-1 More Information Actions
Evaluate impacts of alternative management strategies on fire regimes, and/or on the costs or operational impacts associated with fire management in unroaded areas, wilderness areas, and other areas managed for similar purposes. Studies considering ecological, social, and institutional factors are encouraged. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-1-2 More Information Actions
Evaluate factors affecting the feasibility of economically viable utilization of biomass material removed to reduce fire hazard and fuel loading. Proposals should consider economic and social factors (such as fluctuations in wood products markets in areas having fuel treatments) as well as impacts of treatment alternatives on key variables such as fuel loading, carbon storage, soil compaction, water quality, or habitat structure. This task is not intended to solicit proposals for development of new technologies or products for utilization of biomass materials. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-1-3 More Information Actions
Within the matrix of land management practices, determine the cumulative effects of fuels manipulation/reduction methods and techniques on future landscape characteristics in terms of fire behavior and severity, wildlife population and habitat structure dynamics, hydrologic effects, soil processes, ecosystem health issues, and other environmental variables; develop one or more methods or approaches to integrate fuels management into landscape level processes. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-1-4 More Information Actions
Develop, apply, and validate improved aircraft or satellite-based remote sensing applications for quantifying fuel types, fuel condition and loading, fire hazard, fire behavior, and effects such as fire distribution and severity. Approaches must be validated by, and linked to, ground measurements. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-1-5 More Information Actions
Evaluate potential contributions of wildland fire (including prescribed fire) smoke emissions to regional haze; develop and test methods, models, and analysis tools to help managers predict, quantify, identify, and document regional haze caused by wildland fires. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-1-6 More Information Actions
Develop methods or systems for incorporating existing weather and climate predictions (ranging from short- to long-term) into tactical and strategic fire preparedness and planning, prescribed fire planning, mid- and long-range fire and land management planning, and assessments of the potential for success of post fire stabilization and rehabilitation treatments; evaluate and analyze the role of climate in interannual, decadal, or longer term changes in fire season characteristics. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-1-7 More Information Actions
Develop scientifically based support tools to improve fire management decision processes. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-3-1 More Information Actions
Develop demonstration sites in various ecosystems across the United States that can serve to illustrate various fuels treatment practices or techniques, their cost effectiveness, and/or environmental effects. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-3-2 More Information Actions
Develop and implement administrative studies to determine local biological, social, physical, or other effects of wildland fire, fuel treatments, or post-fire stabilization/rehabilitation actions. Administrative studies (sometimes called management studies) are typically limited in terms of the number and complexity of measurement variables and the focus is usually on response rather than process. However, proposed work must be of high quality, defendable, replicated, and subject to peer review. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-3-3 More Information Actions
Address local knowledge gaps that are significant to fire management plan development and implementation. Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-S More Information Actions
Special Projects for 2001 Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01-U More Information Actions
Special Workshop Closed on Apr 23, 2001

01B-2-1 More Information Actions
Obtain, document, and evaluate critical, time-sensitive information or data during or following wildland fire incidents or post fire land treatments. Proposals should focus on fire behavior, immediate post-fire effects including fuels reduction, post fire stabilization or rehabilitation, the effects of previous land management activities on fire behavior and severity, as well as similar issues. Proposals should also address wildland/urban interface areas and issues as appropriate. Organized response teams are required. Closed on Oct 15, 2001
