Title: Supplement to the Fire and Fire Surrogate Study: Interdisciplinary and Multi-Site Analysis

Project Proposal Abstract: This proposal seeks supplemental funding for the Fire and Fire Surrogate (FFS) Study, for the purpose of interdisciplinary and multi-site analyses. Initial funding for the FFS study was provided by the JFSP in March 2000, and has allowed full treatment implementation and data collection for 9 of the original 11 sites to date. By the end of this calendar year, we anticipate that a tenth site will have fully implemented treatments, in addition to one year of post-treatment data collection. Including the two sites funded by the National Fire Plan, this means that FFS personnel will soon have access to a data set of 12 completed and nearly identical fire and fire surrogate experiments nationwide. With a national database designed to have the capacity to allow any possible query of these data, we are ready for an unprecedented period of analysis, during which time we can answer a wide range of questions on how forest systems across the country respond to alternative fuel reduction treatments. The need for additional funding for analysis stems from the fact that little analysis funding was requested in the original proposal, and also from the realization that the task of analysis is far more challenging than we had previously imagined. We have succeeded remarkably well during the treatment implementation phase of the FFS project. We now believe that in order to fully succeed in the analysis phase, supplemental funding is needed. This proposal asks for funding to support a few key personnel, training in analysis for these personnel and key FFS team members, and consulting work provided by statisticians. Training is needed for several statistical techniques that will be used in the analysis phase, including meta-analysis, multivariate analysis, and structural equation modeling. These analyses will allow us to take full advantage of the unique interdisciplinary and multi-site design offered by the Fire and Fire Surrogate Study, and will allow us to provide the highest quality information to managers in forest systems nationwide.
