    Descriptive Summary Abstract: A team of fire scientists and fire control personnel began work on the National Fire Danger Rating System in , and tested the partially-developed system throughout the United States. The system, which sought to determine the probability of forest fire, became fully operational in The collection includes memoranda and correspondence among. Forest fires were widespread throughout the US northern Rocky Mountains during the regional-fire years of , , , and However, until recently there was little knowledge of whether forest fires were also widespread in the past or of the role of climate in the occurrence of such years.

    Soon after Rocky Mountain National Park was established in , a period of fire suppression began. Because all fires were thought to be harmful, they were put out. With fire suppression, montane forests became denser and more susceptible to severe crown fires. The health of the forests declined. A screenshot from the USGS film "Living with Fire". "Living with Fire" is a minute USGS production exploring ongoing USGS research on wildfire science in southern California -- where the fire ecology is unlike any other region in the United States.

Weather is never static. It is always dynamic. Its interpretation is an art. The art of applying complex information about weather to the equally complex task of wildland fire control cannot be acquired easily especially not by the mere reading of a book.

The environment is in control in wildland firefighting. Free-burning fires are literally nourished by weather elements. This integrated approach allows fire personnel in the Mountain-Prairie Region to become more familiar with differing management objectives, along with the varying vegetation, topography, and fire behavior experienced across the central/northern Great Plains and Rocky Mountains.
