The NCLFA's Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program gives
undergraduate students professional research experience. Students who
participate in this workforce development program will engage in
rigorous research projects, directed by NCLFA staff, with potential to
publish and present research results.
Undergraduate students have assisted in a number of research projects, including the GNIS for the Montana Base Map, a study of fire history and severity in Montana's Bob Marshall Wilderness Area, and an evaluation of observed versus predicted fire behavior in order to validate burn plans and prescriptions at Moody Forest Natural Area in Georgia.
