Burned area prediction with semiparametric models 
Miguel Boubeta, María José Lombardía, Wenceslao González-Manteiga and Manuel Francisco Marey-Pérez

Semiparametric models provide a tool to predict the burned area over a particular time. The predictions obtained are competitive. The two bootstrap prediction intervals given are computationally fast. The methodology used can be applied to other hazard risks.

Concurrent and antecedent soil moisture relate positively or negatively to probability of large wildfires depending on season 
Erik S. Krueger, Tyson E. Ochsner, J. D. Carlson, David M. Engle, Dirac Twidwell and Samuel D. Fuhlendorf

Large wildfires in Oklahoma, USA were associated with low concurrent soil moisture in both the growing and dormant seasons, but high soil moisture during the growing season also increased wildfire probability in subsequent dormant seasons. Therefore, both wet and dry growing seasons increased wildfire probability, but at different times and for different reasons.

What drives forest fire in Fujian, China? Evidence from logistic regression and Random Forests 
Futao Guo, Guangyu Wang, Zhangwen Su, Huiling Liang, Wenhui Wang, Fangfang Lin and Aiqin Liu

Two different models were applied to identify the main factors influencing forest fire occurrence in Fujian, China. Climate, elevation, railway infrastructure and GDP were found to be important for local forest fire ignition. We also mapped the likelihood of fire occurrence in Fujian based on model results.

Forest fuels and potential fire behaviour 12 years after variable-retention harvest in lodgepole pine 
Justin S. Crotteau, Christopher R. Keyes, Elaine K. Sutherland, David K. Wright and Joel M. Egan

Variable-retention harvesting can be used to create structurally complex, multi-aged lodgepole pine stands, promoting resilience to disturbances. Twelve years post-harvest, treated stands had high variability in potential fire behaviour. Although treatments increased modelled fireline intensity relative to controls, resultant overstorey structures increased thresholds necessary for crown fire propagation.

Data assimilation of dead fuel moisture observations from remote automated weather stations 
Martin Vejmelka, Adam K. Kochanski and Jan Mandel

When dead wood in a forest is dry, wildland fires spread faster. We develop mathematical and statistical methods to provide fuel moisture maps from weather conditions and hourly moisture measurements from remote automated weather stations. These can be used to model fire spread or to estimate fire risk.

Targeting forest management through fire and erosion modelling 
William J. Elliot, Mary Ellen Miller and Nic Enstice

Fire intensity and soil erosion models were used on a 1500-km2 forested watershed to aid in targeting areas that would most benefit from forest management to reduce fire risk. Soil erosion following wildfire was estimated to be reduced by 56 percent if areas most susceptible to fire and erosion were thinned.

Dryness in a Mediterranean-type climate – implications for wildfire burnt area: a case study from Mount Carmel, Israel 
Lea Wittenberg and Haim Kutiel

Wildfires are frequent on Mount Carmel, a typical Mediterranean ecosystem characterised by dry summers. The burnt area of major wildfires is related to the number of days since rain on the day of ignition. Analysis of time series of dryness indicates an elongation in recent decades.

Prescribed burning as a conservation tool for management of habitat for threatened species: the quokka, Setonix brachyurus, in the southern forests of Western Australia 
Karlene Bain, Adrian Wayne and Roberta Bencini

The use of fire for quokka conservation was investigated. Retention of vertical vegetation structure and multiple unburnt patches were important for recolonisation of burnt habitat. These habitat outcomes from prescribed burning can be guided by surface moisture, soil dryness and fire rates of spread. Explicit ecological criteria are presented.

Outcomes of fire research: is science used? 
Molly E. Hunter

This study demonstrates that fire science funded by the Joint Fire Science Program has been used nationally by fire and fuels managers to inform fire and fuels management decisions. This study also highlights factors that have commonly acted as barriers (lack of manager awareness) and facilitators (manager and scientist interactions) of fire science application.

Temporal dependence of burn severity assessment in Siberian larch (Larix sibirica) forest of northern Mongolia using remotely sensed data 
Thuan Chu, Xulin Guo and Kazuo Takeda

We assessed burn severity in Siberian larch forest for different lag times, using Landsat-based indices. Assessment accuracy decreased with increasing lag time. The dNBR was the best predictor of burn severity for 7 years post-fire. After larch regeneration became established, the dNDMI became the best predictor.

Wildfires in the eastern Mediterranean as a result of lightning activity – a change in the conventional knowledge 
Shlomit Paz, Moshe Inbar, Haim Kutiel, Dan Malkinson, Naama Tessler and Lea Wittenberg

No records exist in the scientific literature about lightning fires in the eastern Mediterranean. In October 2014, a thunderstorm developed rapidly. Simultaneously, six wildfires were reported from different locations in northern Israel. This is the first case recorded in recent history of lightning wildfires in the region.

Using Landsat imagery to backcast fire and post-fire residuals in the Boreal Shield of Saskatchewan: implications for woodland caribou management 
John Kansas, Javier Vargas, Hans G. Skatter, Brady Balicki and Kevin McCullum

Designation of critical habitat for woodland caribou across Canada is underpinned by a total disturbance model that incorporates the combined extent of natural and anthropogenic disturbance. This paper identifies management and planning issues associated with overestimating burned areas by using fire mapping that doesn’t include post-fire residuals and water bodies.

How drought-induced forest die-off alters microclimate and increases fuel loadings and fire potentials 
Katinka X. Ruthrof, Joseph B. Fontaine, George Matusick, David D. Breshears, Darin J. Law, Sarah Powell and Giles Hardy

Drought-induced forest die-offs are expected to change fuels and microclimate and likely influence fire behaviour. Fuel loading and microclimate measurements following die-off in south-western Australia showed that die-off plots had 20% higher quantities of 1-h fuels and elevated temperature and wind, which when combined, predicted a 30% higher rate of fire spread.

Regional aspects of modelling burned areas in Europe 
Andrey Krasovskii, Nikolay Khabarov, Mirco Migliavacca, Florian Kraxner and Michael Obersteiner

This paper presents a series of improvements to the quantitative modelling of burned areas in Europe under historical climate. Our analysis is carried out for 2000–2008 for 17 European countries. The annual burned areas modelled by an improved version of the Standalone Fire Model (SFM) are in good agreement with historical observations.

Lack of soil seedbank change with time since fire: relevance to seed supply after prescribed burns 
Matthew P. Chick, Janet S. Cohn, Craig R. Nitschke and Alan York

Environmental variability, geographic variability and time since disturbance influence plant diversity in soil seedbanks. Knowledge around the relative importance of each of these factors is lacking. This research examined the influence of environmental, geographical and temporal variability on species richness and composition in the soil seedbank within a fire-prone heathy-woodland.

Too much, too soon? A review of the effects of increasing wildfire frequency on tree mortality and regeneration in temperate eucalypt forests 
Thomas A. Fairman, Craig R. Nitschke and Lauren T. Bennett

We use south-eastern Australia as a case study to review effects of increasingly frequent and severe wildfires on tree mortality and regeneration in temperate eucalypt forests. We propose conceptual models to articulate these changes and highlight knowledge gaps in our understanding of alternative stable states in these forests.

Structure-level fuel load assessment in the wildland–urban interface: a fusion of airborne laser scanning and spectral remote-sensing methodologies 
Nicholas S. Skowronski, Scott Haag, Jim Trimble, Kenneth L. Clark, Michael R. Gallagher and Richard G. Lathrop

We used remote sensing data and analysis techniques to characterise fuel hazard in the wildland–urban interface at the resolution of individual structures. Our results indicate that this method can produce consistent estimates of canopy fuel loading across landscapes that can be associated with individual structures or parcels. The application of the work here could inform both strategic fire management decisions and broader, policy-level analysis.

Toward an integrated system for fire, smoke and air quality simulations 
Adam K. Kochanski, Mary Ann Jenkins, Kara Yedinak, Jan Mandel, Jonathan Beezley and Brian Lamb

This study presents and tests an integrated wildfire smoke prediction system formed by coupling WRF-Sfire, a weather research forecast system plus surface fire behaviour model, with the chemical transport model WRF-Chem. The coupled WRF-Sfire-Chem aims to predict pyro-plume development, and smoke dispersion and its air quality impacts, by comprehensively modelling fire spread, heat release during flaming combustion, fire emissions and fire plume rise, as well as downwind smoke dispersion and associated chemistry.

Christine Eriksen , Trent Penman , Bronwyn Horsey and Ross Bradstock
pp. 363-377

This paper examines how wildfire preparedness differs between residents with a mental, written or no survival plan, and the implications of plans having been discussed and practised with others. It highlights why explicit and consistent official preparedness advice is important for risk communication and communities at risk.

Jeffrey P. Prestemon , David T. Butry and Douglas S. Thomas
pp. 390-402

Wildfire managers devote scarce resources towards reducing the overall costs and losses associated with human-ignited wildfires. Resource use could be reduced if decision-makers knew when future fires could ignite. We found positive net economic benefits of forecasting incendiary and non-incendiary human-ignited wildfires on tribal lands in the US.

Karen D. Blouin , Mike D. Flannigan , Xianli Wang and Bohdan Kochtubajda
pp. 421-432

Lightning-caused wildfires in remote areas have large suppression costs and a greater chance of escaping initial attack when compared to human-caused wildfires. We present an ensemble forecasting approach based on 6-h and 24-h random forest models. The models provide a significant improvement in lightning prediction for Alberta’s forested areas, achieving hit rates of up to 85%.

Altered mixed-severity fire regime has homogenised montane forests of Jasper National Park 
blank image
Raphaël D. Chavardès and Lori D. Daniels
pp. 433-444

Dendrochronological data from 29 montane sites in Jasper National Park provided evidence of a mixed-severity fire regime. Historical fires leaving scars or even-aged cohorts burned between 1646 and 1905. In the absence of fires after 1905, forests have matured simultaneously, homogenising the landscape. Proactive management to counter fire suppression effects is justified.

pp. 445-455

This study explores the implications of using heterogeneous fuel beds in combustion wind tunnel experiments. The overall variability in rate of spread was low in comparison to the effects of the experimental treatments, so subsequent experiments using heterogeneous fuel will not require large numbers of replicates to detect effects of treatments.

pp. 478-483

Different combinations of temperature and exposure time were used to test the effect of heat on the dehiscence of capsules and on the germination of seeds of Eucalyptus globulus. This study shows that seed shed is caused by capsule desiccation but not directly by heat, and that capsules provide effective protection to seeds for specific temperature–time combinations.

Winter grazing decreases the likelihood of large wildfires and fire-induced mortality of native bunchgrasses. Contrary to claims by Smith et al. (2016), our data and prior literature provide strong evidence that grazing reduced the duration of elevated temperatures experienced by bunchgrasses and moderated fire behaviour.
