The Alaska Fire Science Consortium announces a webinar entitled
"Historic and Future Flammability in Alaskan Boreal Forests and Tundra
Ecosystems." It will be held Wednesday, 20 March 2013 at 1:00-2:00 p.m.
AKDT, and the target audience includes fire managers, resource managers,
students, and scientists. Additional information will be distributed to
interested people who register at:
https://www1.gotomeeting.com/register/531044768.

The webinar will be presented by Adam Young, at PhD student in the
Department of Forest, Rangeland, and Fire Sciences at the University of
Idaho. Young's current research is focused on how climate and vegetation
influence fire occurrence at multi-decadal time scales in Alaskan boreal
forest and tundra ecosystems. Worldwide fire regimes are expected to
shift as a result of climate change. Predicting when, where, and how
these fire regime changes will occur requires an understanding of the
climatic controls of fire at differing temporal and spatial scales. This
research uses past climate-fire relationships to predict 21st-century
fire regime changes across Alaskan boreal forest and tundra ecosystems
at a range of temporal and spatial scales, providing insight into when,
where, and how future fire regimes may change.

Background information is available in a 2012 poster entitled
'Quantifying the historic and future distribution of fire in Alaskan
tundra ecosystems,' by Young, Adam M.; Higuera, Philip E.; Duffy, Paul
A.; and Hu, Feng Sheng. It can be downloaded at:
