about AirFire

The AirFire Team is part of U.S. Forest Service (USFS) Research and Development, specifically the Pacific Northwest (PNW) Research Station’s Pacific Wildland Fire Science Laboratory. AirFire is one of four research teams with the USFS PNW’s Threat Characterization and Management Program.  AirFire was founded in 2002 by Dr. Sue Ferguson (1953-2005).  AirFire is based out of Seattle, Washington.


AirFire is grateful to the National Fire Plan, USFS Fire and Aviation Management, NASA, the Joint Fire Sciences Program, the EPA, and the Department of Interior for their continued support.
