The Alaska Fire Science Consortium is hosting the 3rd annual Fire Science Workshop Oct. 6-7. All UAF faculty and students interested wildland fire-related research are invited to attend.

This event will be a great opportunity to connect and interact with the fire and land management community along with other fire scientists.

This year’s workshop will cover several topics ranging from new fire behavior modeling tools, to the effects of changing fire regimes, to communicating fire science through art. There will also be an informal poster session on Thursday, Oct. 6. Bring a poster to share your latest projects.

Check out the workshop agenda to see the full list of presentations along with directions and remote participation instructions.

The Fire Science Workshop will be held at the BLM – Alaska Fire Service main office on Fort Wainwright.
