A Burning Question: What can long-term datasets teach us?

By Justin Welty, USGS Forest and Rangeland Ecosystem Science Center

- Long-term datasets are critical to our understanding of many factors that affect the natural world and its flow of goods and services to human communities.
- Until recently, reading available, high-quality, long-term data were lacking for wildland fires and land management activities.
- "Big data" are important in natural resource management. Two examples are the Combined Wildland Fire Dataset and the Land Treatment Digital Library.
- There is a great need to make these long-term datasets available and more accessible to researchers, resource managers, and the public.
