Welcome to the CFSC's interactive map of fire science resources for the state of California. New scientific papers and research briefs are added on a rolling basis. Eventually the map will be populated with points representing locally relevant fire science research papers and briefs for managers and stakeholders.
Click on the points to see a table of information about each paper or brief. This table will includes links to download PDF's if available, and a citation for each mapped paper. Points are located in the general area of research addressed in the paper, and are not necessarily located on the exact location of research.
BLUE points represent research briefs, and RED points represent scientific articles.
