U of I, Colorado, Columbia Study Pinpoints 2017 Wildfire Triggers Ahead of Fire Season

Posted Tue, 05 Jun 2018 10:00:00 -0700

Western wildfire seasons are worse when it’s dry and fuel-rich and the chances of ignition are high. All three factors were pushed to their limits last year, triggering one of the largest and costliest U.S. wildfire seasons in recent decades, according to a new paper by a University of Idaho researcher and counterparts at the University of Colorado at Boulder and Columbia University. “Policy steps are being made to alleviate the costs of firefighting and allow for more proactive fire risk mitigation,” said John Abatzoglou, associate professor in U of I’s Department of Geography. “However, fire is a natural hazard that we will live with and efforts should be made to reflect fire risks based on future conditions rather than the past.” Read more

Yellowstone Study Develops New Way of Estimating Magma in Park Supervolcano

Posted Mon, 04 Jun 2018 10:30:00 -0700

New research from the University of Idaho and Washington State University suggests previous studies have significantly underestimated the amount of heat escaping from the hot springs inside Yellowstone National Park. “By learning about these processes, we will build on our understanding of the Yellowstone supervolcano’s eruption cycle,” said Peter Larson, a professor in the School of Environment at Washington State University. A team of scientists — led by Larson and U of I’s Jerry Fairley, a professor in the College of Science’s Department of Geological Sciences — measured the volume of hot water flowing through several hot springs and estimated the heat loss from the springs. Their study is titled “Direct Measurement of Advective Heat Flux from Several Yellowstone Hot Springs, Wyoming, USA” and was published this week in the journal Geosphere. Read more
