Historical Wildfire Burn Patterns at Sub-Landscape Scales
Most, if not all wildfire pattern research focus on two scales: landscape and event. At intermediate, or meso-scales, we assume that disturbance event size adequately addresses NRV needs. This project tests that hypothesis, starting with a natural wildfire database from northern Saskatchewan.

The objective of this study is to quantify the historical wildfire activity levels at multiple time and space scales using a grid-based system across a western boreal landscape. This will help land managers understand when and where natural wildfires brun in a more robust format that can be readily integrated into forest land managmeent.
