Southern Sierra Fire and Hydroclimate Workshop

The Southern Sierra Fire and Hydroclimate Workshop is scheduled for October 1-4, 2013 at the Yosemite Lodge in Yosemite Valley.  This event combines, for the first time, the annual Yosemite Hydroclimate workshop and the Wildland Fire Science workshop.  The workshop focuses on an integrated view of the physical landscape, climate effects, hydrology, and fire regimes of the Sierra Nevada.   Given the recent Rim Fire, which burned portions of the Stanislaus National Forest and Yosemite National Park, this and future workshops should provide a useful forum for tracking fire science efforts in the coming years.   More information and registration details can be found here.
