Abstract:
The Canadian Wildland Fire Information System, Fire Behavior Prediction system, provides quantitative estimates of head fire spread rate, fuel consumption, fire intensity and fire description.The Fire Behavior Prediction system gives estimates of fire area, perimeter, perimeter growth rate, and flank and back fire behavior.
