The USDA Forest Service Atmospheric Sciences and Fire Weather Research portfolio supports research and development to improve and innovate science and tools related to fire weather and behavior, smoke from wildfires and prescribed fires, and air pollution and extreme weather events that affect forest management. The portfolio connects fire weather, wind, precipitation and drought, and atmospheric pollution to ecosystems and their environment. The primary strategic goals of the portfolio are 1) to transition fire weather and smoke research to operational tools for firefighters, land managers, and communities, and 2) to collaborate with federal, state, tribal, local, academic, and private partners on atmospheric science related effects on forest management such as fire weather and behavior, extreme wind and precipitation events, and deposition of atmospheric pollution. This talk will cover Forest Service Atmospheric Science R&D priorities, recent advances in fire weather products, and future research directions and opportunities.
