Robert "Zeke" Ziel, a long-term analyst and fire behavior specialist for the State of Alaska, Zeke gives an overview of the past and current tools used in Alaska (and elsewhere) for Landscape Risk Assessment and exposure to wildfire. Modeling is more art than science in that the questions you ask and the modeling inputs strongly influence the outcome. He covers inputs and caveats associated with the inputs, including ignitions, landscape vegetation layer, and environmental factors. Modeling for risk assessment is become a standard practice and tools are becoming easier to use.
