Title: Influence of Prescribed and Wildfire on Forest Structure and Fire Severity

Project Proposal Abstract: The overarching goal of this study is to provide information on the three local data gaps discussed above. The specific objectives of this study by which the goals will be met are 1) To examine the relationship between forest structure and fire severity distributions created by prescribed fires (implemented 1998 through 2003) versus relationship between forest structure and fire severity created by wildfires (2003) that burned through and around prescribed fires through a retrospective study (local data gap 1); 2) To evaluate the influence of time since a prescribed fire was implemented and its effectiveness in altering wildfire behavior and/or severity (local data gap 2), and 3) To use these results to design and test fire prescriptions (local data gap 3). The results from this study will supply information for fire and silvicultural prescriptions for use in the dry forests of the western United States.
