  • Wildfires are expensive, dangerous, and have massive impacts on people and ecosystems, yet ecosystems evolve with wildland fire.
  • USGS fire scientists help understand what factors affect wildland fire occurrence, intensity, spread, and effects.
  • What can be done to reduce the damaging effects of wildfires and increase the beneficial aspects of wildland fire - USGS works with fire and land managers to identify cost effective options.
