Geog 540 The Ecology and Management of Wildfire

A field-based class offered jointly by the Departments of Environmental Science & Management and Geography. This class focuses on the complex challenges of managing wildfire in integrated social and ecological systems (SESs) and uses the western US as case study to focus on the biophysical and social science behind those challenges. The course adds field studies in NE Oregon to understand how integrated SESs manage wildfire and wildfire risks in practice.
