Real-time Observation Monitor and Analysis Network (ROMAN)
The Real-time Observation Monitor and Analysis Network (ROMAN) provides access to environmental observations from thousands of weather stations around the nation. Observations collected by federal, state, and local agencies as well as commercial firms are integrated into easy-to-use tables and maps. Access to Remote Automated Weather System (RAWS) data has been streamlined and latencies (the time lag between when the observation is valid and when it is available for use) have been cut typically in half. The reliability of access to RAWS and National Weather Service and Federal Aviation Administration observations has been improved by adding additional hardware and porting software to a centralized, secure facility.

FIREHouse is a collaboration between the Fire and Environmental Research Applications Team (FERA) of the USDA Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, Pacific Wildland Fire Sciences Laboratory; the University of Washington; the National Park Service; the Bureau of Land Management – Alaska Fire Service; the US Fish and Wildlife Service; and the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII). The NBII is a broad, collaborative program that provides increased access to data and information on the nation’s biological resources. Funding for FIREHouse has been provided by the Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) and NBII. FIREHouse is coordinating efforts with the Fire Research and Management Exchange System (FRAMES) project team. Content on FIREHouse will provide substantial contributions to the Northwest Fire Science Portal and the Alaska Fire Science Portal.
