The purpose of the "Ember Award" is to recognize sustained excellence in wildland fire research and to encourage innovation, exploration, application, and dissemination of important research results. The name "Ember" reflects the fact that research and science often move slowly, and their benefits or impacts may not be apparent for years. The award was established to recognize sustained and excellent research contributions to wildland fire science, innovative solutions to important wildland fire challenges, and effective and appropriate communication of wildland fire science and research results.
To nominate, please compose a letter (no more than 800 words) explaining why the nominee should receive the award, and a list of three or more individuals (with contact information) who confirm the nominee's contributions. When writing your nomination please assume we do not know the individual you are nominating.
