FireStem: Computer Model for Predicting Tree Mortality Based on Fire Behavior and Intensity
Entry ID: FireStem

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: FireStem is a computer model designed to aid fire managers in predicting tree mortality based on fire behavior and intensity. The eventual goal is to link FireStem and BehavePlus to produce mortality predictions based on fuel information, moisture, and fire behavior for a specified region and a range of tree species.
