The rigorous evaluation of wildland fire impacts on the biosphere and atmosphere requires methods that can characterize combustion processes across a range of temporal and spatial scales. To overcome several challenges, novel research has been developed to quantify the 1) structure and heterogeneity of the pre-fire vegetation; 2) energy released during the combustion process; and 3) landscape-scale impacts of fire on the biosphere and atmosphere. The grand challenge that this seminar will explore is how to integrate the pre-, active-, and post-fire measurements and physical process models into a single robust and well validated framework.
