Get ready for this summer’s fire season by checking out a new Web site at Northern Arizona University.
Launched May 1, “Forest Fire and the American
Southwest” is “a one-stop-shopping site for information
about forest fire in the Southwest,” says John Grahame,
designer of the Web site.
“There is a lot of fear
about the upcoming fire season,” he says. “So we
decided to create a gateway Web site that was not aligned
politically, but would have links to all political and scientific
points of view.”
Grahame and graduate student
Charles Laurel update the site daily with current fire maps,
statistics, news stories and “hot topics.” Log on to
