Goals for the meeting and process: 1) Using the available statewide fire weather data and combining stations to develop long data sets for fire slowing/ending events probabilities (we will not be doing SE Alaska); 2) Develop prescriptions statewide (except SE) that constitutes a fire slowing event - and/or a turning point value, when looking at large duration fires and large fire spread; 3) Document assumptions and process as we proceed ( so we can improve upon the product); 4) Use information in 2008 fire season to refine values to assist managers in Stage 2 & 3 WFIP's; and 5) Refine prescriptions - assumptions in the fall 2008 after summer validation.
