This online seminar series will cover the breadth of wildland fire research relevant to California and introduce researchers to new topics and research groups across the state. Topics will include fire weather, wildfire risk, fire ecology, remote sensing, emissions, fire dynamics, fire modeling and public health. Featuring many early-career researchers, this series is aimed at a highly interdisciplinary academic audience but is open to anyone interested in these topics.

The series will be held weekly, every Tuesday from 3:00 – 4:00 pm (PST) starting January 19, 2021. A virtual chat will be held with the speaker immediately afterwards (4:00 – 5:00, PST). Graduate students and early-career researchers are especially welcome to join us for these networking sessions.
The series is organized by Michael Gollner (UC Berkeley), Crystal Kolden (UC Merced) and Jeanette Cobain (UC Merced) and supported by the Berkeley Fire Research Group, College of Engineering, University of California, Berkeley and the University of California, Merced. The series outreach partner is the California Science Consortium, a JFSP Fire Science Exchange Network.
