From the text ... 'Operational guides for predicting various aspects of wildland fire behavior, including crowning, are generally dependent on mathematical models that can take a variety of forms. The degree of accuracy in predictions of crown fire behavior is dependent on the model's applicability to a given situation, the validity of the model variables' relationships, and the reliability of the model input data (Alexander and Cruz 2013).'
