Mixed-Severity Fire Regimes in the Southern Foothills of Alberta

Research Project from the Healthy Landscapes Program.

This project has two inter-related components, both related to the idea that most boreal fires do not kill most of the vegetation within the boundaries of the wildfire event.

The first part explores the relationships between the severity, size, and frequency of historical fires over both time and space by creating a standard tree ring chronology over an extended area of a landscape.

The second component of this project is the development of a partial-severity burn module.
