Fire and Environment Research Applications Team, Pacific Northwest Research Station, Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture
Data Center Description
The Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team (FERA) informs management of natural resources through research and development in fuels and combustion science, fire and landscape ecology, and integration of the physical and ecological sciences.
FERA anchors the Pacific Wildland Fire Sciences Laboratory in the Fremont Neighborhood of Seattle. Led by Dr. David L. Peterson, FERA has approximately 20 employees, roughly half employed by Forest Service Research and half by the University of Washington. Close collaboration between these two institutions provides strength in the continuity of research, and opportunity to work with team members who possess the up-to-date technical skills.
