Webinar - FlamMap 6.0


Hosted by the Northern Rockies Fire Science Network

Presented by Chuck McHugh, Fire Spatial Analyst with the USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station

This webinar will provide an introduction and overview of the FlamMap modeling system and its capabilities. FlamMap is a fire analysis desktop application that runs in a 64-bit Windows Operating System environment. The FlamMap fire mapping and analysis system (Finney 2006) describes potential fire behavior (spread rate, flame length, fireline intensity, etc.), fire growth and spread and conditional burn probabilities under constant environmental conditions (weather and fuel moisture). Dead fuel moisture and conditioning of dead fuels in each pixel is based on slope, shading, elevation, aspect, and weather. With the inclusion of FARSITE it can now compute wildfire growth and behavior for longer time periods under heterogeneous conditions of terrain, fuels, fuel moistures and weather.)
