While still not perfect, advancements in technology have made it possible to gather fire behavior data on actively burning wildland fires (Butler and others 2010, Jimenez and others 2007). The Adaptive Management Services Enterprise Team (AMSET: a subunit of the Forest Service) formed the Fire Behavior Assessment Team (FBAT) to gather such detailed fire behavior data. FBAT is a unique team that specializes in measuring fire behavior on prescribed burns and wildland fires. FBAT includes 6 to 12 qualified fireline employees with at least 1 crew boss or (more typically) 1 division supervisor. The primary team goals are to (1) measure fire behavior and effects and their relationships to prefire fuels, fire history, and treatments; (2) measure fire effects on archeological and biological values; and (3) build a dataset useful for calibration of consumption, smoke production, and fire behavior models. FBAT also actively collaborates and shares data with interested land managers and research groups.
