Title: Quality Assurance of Weather Data and the Probability of Favorable Weather for Prescribed Fire in Alaska

Project Proposal Abstract: This proposal is in response to the Joint Fire Science Program's Announcement for Proposals 2004-2, Task 1, directly address[ing] local knowledge gaps associated with planning and implementation of fuels treatment that are specifically identified by an agency administrator. At the request of the Alaska Wildland Fire Coordinating Group (AWFCG), as and the State of Alaska Department of Natural Resources Division of Forestry Northern Region, we will correct data availability and quality assurance problems surrounding the Alaskan Remote Automated Weather Station (RAWS) and other weather station data, as well as the lack of prescribed fire and forecast tools associated with the lack of quality assured weather station data. The sum total of this work will not only directly benefit Alaska, but will also provide a suite of tools that can be distributed to provide benefits in other locations.
