PROGRAM AREA

======================

 

<h4>Mission</h4>

 

<ul>

    <li>

    <p>We generate knowledge about the nature, causes, and consequences of large, rapid, or significant changes to ecosystems that potentially threaten societal values</p>

    </li>

</ul>

 

<h4>Our Value</h4>

 

We provide the basis for improved methods of detecting, monitoring, and mitigating potential threats. This knowledge is used by land managers, policy makers, state and private foresters, and … to …

 

 

 

======================

RESEARCH AREAS

======================

 

 

<h4>Our Focus</h4>

 

<ol>

    <li>The cause, occurrence, extent, and consequences of threatening conditions and perceptions of threatening conditions and people’s perceptions of threatsp&gt;</li>

    <li>Ecological or social processes interacting across multiple temporal and spatial scales to create potential threats</li>

    <li>Thresholds in ecosystem dynamics; the biological, physical, and social consequences of crossing these thresholds; and perceptions of and responses to crossed thresholds</li>

    <li>Ecological pattern and process management reducing the probability, magnitude, and consequences of a threat</li>

    <li>Range of possible future conditions, and associated uncertainties and tradeoffs</li>

</ol>

 

<h4>Our Expertise</h4>

 

<ul>

    <li>Atmospheric Science</li>

    <li>Biological Conservation</li>

    <li>Botany</li>

    <li>Climatology</li>

    <li>Ecological Modeling</li>

    <li>Environmental Management</li>

    <li>Forest Science</li>

    <li>Molecular Ecology</li>

    <li>Plant Ecology</li>

    <li>Rangeland Ecology</li>

    <li>Wildlife Management

    

 

    </li>

</ul>

 

<h4>How We Work</h4>

 

<p>Work in the program addresses five problems that provide a progression from fundamental understanding of threats; how processes interact across multiple scales; what thresholds—both ecological and social—are crossed when a potential threat becomes realized; what management strategies may be employed to address threats at multiple scales; and what conditions are likely to be important in the future.</p>

Study models smoke intrusion during prescribed burn; yields better knowledge about smoke transport

Smoke from prescribed fires in the Deschutes National Forest has negatively affected the city of Bend; Oregon; nine times over the past 2 years. These smoke events threaten the ability of land managers to use prescribed burning as a tool to mitigate hazardous fuels in the wildland-urban interface around Bend. Further complicating the situation is the narrow window that managers have to safely…

Station scientists provided a core set of customized advanced smoke modeling results and expert analyses at the request of managers during the 2011 Wallow Fire in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona; the largest fire in contemporary Arizona history. Their efforts were instrumental in determining the daily smoke outlook.

The smoke from the fire created a significant…

Spatial patterns found in disturbance and regrowth within southeast Alaska forests

Natural forest growth is important to carbon sequestration patterns; and climate is likely to alter both disturbances and regrowth. Scientists used remote sensing and inventory data to examine recent trends in biomass and forest area in southeast Alaska. They found that although rain forest dynamics occur at a very small spatial scale (…

Scotch broom is a large nonnative shrub that has invaded forest and prairie sites throughout western Oregon and Washington. It produces many seeds that remain viable for years, enabling Scotch broom to occupy sites for decades. Several native grasses of the Pacific Northwest, however, show promise as effective competitors for inhibiting development of Scotch broom seedlings.

Title Does Not Show Up:

ITEM THREE

ITEM FOUR

Study models smoke intrusion during prescribed burn; yields better knowledge about smoke transport

Advanced smoke modeling and analyse

 

Added Alternate Text: “Two research scientists configure smoky monitoring equipment mounted on a tripod in a forest opening.”

Added Title: “Smoky monitoring equipment deployed in-situ”

Edited “Description” The station and Pacific Northwest Region partnered with the Deschutes National Forest to better understand meteorological conditions near Bend

Added caption: “To better understand when and how smoke intrusions from prescribed burns occur; scientists deployed up to 12 meteorological and smoke monitors during fall 2014 and spring 2015 in a 40-mile north-to-south transect from Sisters to Sunriver; Oregon.

I am not seeing the option to “moderate” after clicking “save” and then hitting “http://pnw-dr-sand-1.netbase420.com/pnw-research-highlights/study-models-smoke-intrusion-during-prescribed-burn-yields-better-knowledge&#8221;

The corrected text, “partnered with the Deschutes National Forest” is there, but I am not seeing a way to confirm the alternative text tags.

The caption is not there, the title is not there, the alternative text is not there.

 

These don’t show up in the slider either.

 

The “moderate” feature doesn’t appear to be around.

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
