Description

The North American Wildland Fuels Database (NAWFD) data access application was developed to enable best practices for modeling national- and regional-scale fire emissions by incorporating uncertainty into fuels estimates. NAWFD aggregates fuel loading information from 26,620 field sites compiled from 271 data sources. Each data point is assigned to an EVT Group fuelbed. Probability distributions are generated for each fuel stratum within each fuelbed.
