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.
