Southern Fire Portal

FRAMES - Southern Fire Portal

The Southern Fire Portal (SFP) is a geographic focus of the Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES).

The SFP improves fire science organization and accessibility by integrating and expanding three comprehensive, complementary sources of fire information:

  1. Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES)
  2. The Encyclopedia of Southern Fire Science (ESFS)
  3. The Tall Timbers Research Station E.V. Komarek Fire Ecology Database and Thesaurus.

As a nexus of fire effects information and technology transfer, the Southern Fire Portal is the Southeast's gateway for continuing collaboration between fire management and research communities and their publics.

Visit the SFP for fire-related research data, documents, projects, tools, and Web sites.
