A Summary of Survey Responses to the Drought Webinar Series

To address the different needs in the drought-stricken South Central United States, a four-pronged approach was used: regional workshops, state drought planning, a series of webinars, and supporting local impact reporting. This report highlights the webinar series and outcomes from the survey that was administered during December 2011.

Changing Fire Regimes and Management Strategies

New SCIPP Report by Darrian Bertrand. This project documents the seasonal and inter-annual variability of suitable burn conditions across the South Central Plains region of Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas. Prescribed Burn Associations from the included states were contacted for minimum and maximum thresholds of temperature, wind speed, and relative humidity in order to obtain the appropriate values for data analysis. Hourly data for the time period of 1996-2015 were analyzed in order to produce a climatological analysis of burn conditions, and a glimpse into future conditions indicates a potential change in the frequency of these suitable burn conditions by the end of the century.
