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.

Climate Hazard Brochure Series - Drought

Drought is one of the most common and costly hazards to impact the United States. In contrast to most hazards, drought can impact any state, or a majority of states, at any given time of the year. Moreover, drought is not a stranger to people in the SCIPP Region.

Climate Hazard Brochure Series - Flash Flooding

Over the past 30 years, flash flooding was responsible for the highest number of weather related fatalities within the United States (NOAA). On average, more U.S. property damage is due to floods than any other weather related disaster (NOAA). Similar to drought and tornados, flash floods occur in all states and can occur at all times of the year. Some states within the SCIPP region, such as Texas, are particularly susceptible to flash floods.
