CONSUME
Entry ID: USDAFS_CONSUME

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Consume is a user-friendly computer program designed for resource managers with
some working knowledge of Microsoft Windows applications. The software
predicts the amount of fuel consumption and emissions from the burning of
logged units, piled debris, and natural fuels based on weather data, the amount
and fuel moisture of fuels, and a number of other factors. Using these
predictions, the resource manager can accurately determine when and where to
conduct a prescribed burn to achieve desired objectives while reducing impacts
on other resources. Consume can be used for most forest, shrub and grasslands
in North America.
