May 2016 - Wildfire Mitigation

At a time when wildfires are getting bigger and more intense and firefighting is getting more complex due to population growth in the wildland-urban interface, researchers are focusing attention on better understanding factors such as fire weather, wildfire behavior, smoke dispersion, and community preparedness for wildfire.  This month we feature a scientist, a product, research and a partnership that help us to live with fire by mitigating its impacts.
