Wildland Fire Research
The DoD is one of the largest landholders in the US, involving areas where fire plays a key role in ecosystem health while also strongly influencing training land availability. Research focused on maintaining DoD lands for use in maintaining military readiness, as well as safeguarding the health and safety of the force, is the emphasis of this technical session. SERDP & ESTCP research seeks to improve DoD fire management tools and practices, predict and manage smoke emissions and dispersion, and decrease risks from wildfires.
