Research and Monitoring at FRAP

There are three general program areas of forest and wildfire research and monitoring managed by FRAP:

  • FRAP-lead research projects and direct collaborations, often in partnership with other research institutions.                 


  • Forest Health Research Program - a grant program funded by the California Climate Initiative (CCI) with projects led by members of the scientific community.
