Wildfires Know No Boundaries

For the first time, U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station and Oregon State University scientists have assessed cross-boundary wildfire exposure in the western United States by mapping potential fire transmission among public and private lands, and identifying areas where ignitions are most likely to expose communities to wildfire. Results are highlighted in the new General Technical Report-392, Cross-boundary Wildfire and Community Exposure: A Framework and Application in the Western US.
