Title: Consequences of Alternative Response Strategies to Wildland Fires in the Northern Rockies and Southwest in 2007 and 2008

Project Proposal Abstract: This proposal addresses JFSP project announcement FA-FRA09-001, task statement E. Trade-off assessments of AMR decisions. The proposed project will evaluate the consequences of alternative responses to 2007 and 2008 wildland fires. We will characterize the consequences of strategies that were actually implemented and contrast those with what could have happened had alternative strategies and tactics been used. Consequences will be characterized in terms of long-term effects on fuel loads, future fire behavior, how alternative responses affect the achievement of different land management objectives, and incident management costs. In an effort to broaden the applicability of our results about the factors that influence contrasting outcomes, we evaluate multiple fires from different geographic regions.
