The USGS fire science mission is to produce and deliver the best available scientific information, tools, and products to support land and emergency management by individuals and organizations at all levels. Below are web tools associated with our fire science portfolio.
USGS Fire Science Strategy
To help address growing wildfire-related challenges in America, the USGS developed a Wildland Fire Science Strategy that lays out the critical needs for wildfire research over the next five years. This strategy can be used to better understand the balance between fire’s benefits and its detrimental impacts.
USGS Firelight newsletter provides you updates on the latest USGS fire science for a changing world. Each issue features a variety of our wildland fire science, providing information, data and tools for use by managers before, during, and after fires.
