The climate has changed, have we? Reflections on 50 years of fire management in Alaska

Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at 10:00 AM AKST
Speaking: 
Randi Jandt, Alaska Fire Science Consortium

 

Jointly sponsored and hosted by the Alaska Fire Science Consortium

 

Randi Jandt will talk about the evolution of Alaska firefighting practices--field and management--over the past 50 years.  We are starting to be aware of the changes in climate and in Alaska forests: is the wildfire "problem" the same one we faced a half-century ago?  Have our management approaches and thinking about wildfire changed during that time? She will combine her background in land and fire management agencies with input from long-term observers to discuss which changes might be a response to changing weather, climate, and fire regimes in Alaska.
