element 20
Element 20
  • Fuels information required and procedures
  • Weather monitoring required and procedures
  • Fire behavior monitoring required and procedures
  • Smoke dispersal monitoring required and procedures
  • Monitoring required to ensure prescribed fire objectives are met
monitoring methods
Monitoring Methods
  • Brown’s down woody inventory
  • Step counts
  • Photo guides
  • Photo points
  • Monitoring forms
    • Fuels
    • Weather
    • Behavior
    • Smoke
monitoring tips
Monitoring Tips
  • Use standard protocols – FFI, monitoring manuals
  • Use standardized forms
  • Store the data for later retrieval and analysis
reasons monitoring fails
Reasons Monitoring Fails
  • Never completed
  • Information/data collected but not analyzed
  • Information/data analyzed but results inconclusive
  • Information/data analyzed, interesting, but never presented or used
  • Information/data presented but not used due to internal or external factors
  • Data/analyses filed but can’t be found
  • Data/analyses filed on media that become obsolete and not transferred
interagency monitoring strategy key features
Interagency Monitoring Strategy Key Features
  • Three intensity levels
    • Level 1 – GIS maps of treatment areas
    • Level 2 – qualitative assessment of treatment success on 10% of treatment units
    • Level 3 – quantitative assessment of treatment success on 1-2 projects per year
  • Conduct assessments before and after treatment
key features continued
Key Features Continued
  • Standard protocols and database – FFI
  • Minimum data standards
  • Monitor only what is relevant
  • Additional monitoring paid by other resource programs
goals of monitoring strategy
Goals of Monitoring Strategy
  • Alter Fire Regime Condition Class
  • Alter expected wildfire behavior
  • Alter expected wildfire effects
