Description

The Wildland Fire Emissions Information System (WFEIS) was developed under NASA Carbon Cycle Science and Applications programs to provide a consistent approach to estimating emissions at continental to sub-continental scales (see http://wfeis.mtri.org). We present an overview of the WFEIS system, including the web system and data used for emissions estimates for the US. Plans for system development, preparations underway for transitioning to an operational environment, and ideas for extending WFEIS to other regions are also presented.
