New Data Map Helps Researchers Find Collaborators, Get Data, and Manage Program Objectives in Real Time

Posted Fri, 13 Jul 2018 08:51:00 -0700

Research today is becoming broader and more complex as it crosses disciplinary and institutional boundaries, making it increasingly difficult to find collaborators and manage projects. A new online tool, simply called Data Map, was recently developed to solve these and other issues for Idaho’s three major research universities—the University of Idaho, Idaho State University, and Boise State University.

U of I Experts Available to Discuss Climate Change, Upcoming Fire Season

Posted Thu, 21 Jun 2018 12:02:00 -0700

In Idaho, earlier drying and snow melt over the past half-century have extended the state’s fire season. University of Idaho experts believe the length of time vegetation is dry enough to sustain a burn has lengthened by roughly a month since the 1980s. These changes, as well as shifts in drought conditions, snowpack and myriad other effects of climate change, have prompted frequent questions to university scientists and researchers in recent years. U of I researchers have a diversity of expertise in the varied global, regional and local effects of climate change and the way society can adapt to this evolving climate. U of I experts in climate change, fire science, water resources and other fields are available to speak to media about their ongoing research, trends across the Northwest and the world, as well as answer specialized questions relating to their work.

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
