Palaiologos Palaiologou, Maureen Essen, John Hogland, Kostas Kalabokidis
2020 Sensors  
Our study area consists of private, state, and federal land holdings that cover four counties in North-Central Washington, USA (Kittitas, Okanogan, Chelan and Douglas).  ...  In this study, we share an approach to locate and map forest management units with high accuracy and with relatively rapid turnaround.  ...  North-Central Washington is an area that receives frequent precipitation, and even during the summer a large part of the study area is snow covered.  ...

Spatially Heterogeneous Estimates of Fire Frequency in Ponderosa Pine Forests of Washington, USA

James T. Kernan, Amy E. Hessl
2010 Fire Ecology  
We used a dataset of fire-scarred trees collected from four sites in eastern Washington, USA, ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa C. Lawson) forests.  ...  Such information can reveal ecological relationships between fire and the landscape, and provide managers with an improved spatial perspective on fire frequency that can inform risk evaluations, fuels  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This research was funded in part by a Geography and Regional Science, National Science Foundation Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant #NSF DDRI BCS 0508984.  ...

Tree spatial patterns in fire-frequent forests of western North America, including mechanisms of pattern formation and implications for designing fuel reduction and restoration treatments

Andrew J. Larson, Derek Churchill
2012 Forest Ecology and Management  
In this review we synthesize the available spatial reference information for fire-frequent pine and mixed-conifer forests in western North America; interpret this information in the context of restoration  ...  Based on these findings, we encourage managers to consciously adopt a view of forest structure that accommodates spatial heterogeneity within forest stands, and to use this conceptualization of forest  ...  We thank Helen Smith of the USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station Missoula Fire Sciences Lab for providing the data used in Figs. 7 and 8.  ...
