Harnessing the Data Revolution for Fire Science

Increasing the capacity of Nevada for wildland fire research, education and workforce development

VISION STATEMENT

The HDRFS Project Vision is to enable healthy coexistence with wildland fire and to mitigate wildfire danger to human life, infrastructure, and the landscape in Nevada and the intermountain western U.S.

MISSION STATEMENT

The HDRFS Project Mission is to increase the capacity and excellence in Nevada for wildland fire research, research infrastructure planning and coordination, education, and workforce development and to demonstrate this through Team Science in the regionally important sagebrush ecosystem.

Project Overview

The overarching goal of the RII Track-1: Harnessing the Data Revolution for Fire Science (HDRFS) project is to increase the capacity of Nevada (NV) for wildland fire research, education, and workforce development and to demonstrate this increased capacity through technology-enhanced fire science in the regionally important sagebrush ecosystem.
