San José State University's Fire Weather Research Laboratory conducts research on how wildfires create their own weather leading to extreme fire danger.
The lab's goal is to better understand wildland fire behavior by studying fire-atmospheric interactions. The lab provides the fire modeling community datasets for model evaluation and development. In addition, the lab provides community outreach to grade schools in the Wildland-Urban Interface.
The Fire Weather Research Laboratory maintains datasets from all of their field campaigns and wildfire deployments.
Under the direction of Dr. Craig Clements, the Fire Weather Research Laboratory is staffed by undergraduate, graduate, and faculty members of San José State University.
