In an effort to better predict and respond to wildland fires, the UCAR research community works closely with federal and state agencies, emergency managers, and others to enhance understanding of wildfire dynamics.

Bringing to bear ecosystem and atmospheric science, remote sensing and modeling capabilities, and high-performance computing, these researchers are working closely with emergency responders and decision makers to protect U.S. lives and property.
