Summer Wildfire Seminar

Naomi Tague and fellow UCSB professors Andrew Plantinga and Sarah Anderson, as well as Max Moritz of UC Berkeley and Maureen Kennedy of the University of Washington taught a summer seminar at UCSB earlier this month on managing wildfire. The SERI Fire hosted program provided a taste of interdisciplinary research through lectures on wildfire management, applied data analysis, and natural systems modeling techniques, as well as field trips to Sedgwick Reserve and the site of the recent Whittier Fire burn area. Six students from various institutions across the country and from diverse backgrounds and areas of study participated and produced a collaborative poster on wildfire management.
