2017 Sonoma Complex Fires

This project tells the story of the 2017 Sonoma Complex fires, with a specific emphasis on how natural habitats fared during and after the fires, and the important role of science and data in enhancing watershed and community resiliency, land management, and education.  Deliverables from this project include a story map (https://sonomavegmap.org/firestory) and a journal article that analyzed the landscape factors correlated with woody canopy damage. Tukman Geospatial partnered with Kass Green and Associates on this project.

This work was supported by a Rapid Response and Novel Research in Earth Sciences grant from NASA and is expected to inform strategies for future vegetation management to support fuel load reduction and forest health – both locally and in California. The data shared here build upon a long-term collaboration between Sonoma Ag + Open Space, NASA, Sonoma Water, California Department of Fish and Wildlife, is an outgrowth of recommendations in the Watershed Collaborative’s report Living in a Fire Adapted Landscape, and supports the objectives of the Sonoma County Recovery and Resiliency Framework.
