|Application of the Wildfire Risk Assessment Framework||
In 2015, FMI analysts continued to be involved with application of a wildfire risk assessment framework developed largely by RMRS scientists from both the Fire, Fuel, and Smoke Science Program and
Vegetation and fuel management planning is a complex problem that requires advanced vegetation and fire behavior modeling and intensive spatial data analyses.
|BehavePlus||The BehavePlus fire modeling system is a PC-based program that is a collection of models that describe fire behavior, fire effects, and the fire environment.|
|FARSITE||FARSITE computes wildfire growth and behavior for long time periods under heterogeneous conditions of terrain, fuels, and weather.|
Development of the Fire and Fuels Extension to the Forest Vegetation Simulator
|FFI: Ecological Monitoring||
FFI is an ecological monitoring software application designed to assist managers with collection, storage and analysis of ecological information.
|FireFamilyPlus||FireFamilyPlus supports the spectrum of fire weather/fire danger/fire climate/fire occurrence analysis tools required by fire managers to successfully use the National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS).|
|FIREMON||Fire Effects Monitoring and Inventory Protocol|
|FlamMap||FlamMap is a fire behavior mapping and analysis program that computes potential fire behavior characteristics (spread rate, flame length, fireline intensity, etc.)|
FOFEM (a First Order Fire Effects Model) is a computer program for predicting tree mortality, fuel consumption, smoke production, and soil heating caused by prescribed fire or wildfire.
FuelCalc is a desktop software application for determining changes in surface and crown fuel loading after thinning, pruning, piling and/or prescribed fire.
The Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools (LANDFIRE) Prototype Project that developed the tools, protocols, methods, and data products for the National LANDFIRE Project.
|National Fire Danger Rating System||
U.S. National Fire Danger Rating System Development and Support
|Weather Information Management System||(WIMS) is a mission critical, national system, managed and maintained by USDA, Forest Service's Fire and Aviation Management (F&AM) branch for interagency use.|
|WindNinja||WindNinja is a computer program that computes spatially varying wind fields for wildland fire application.|
WindNinja-Mobile has been developed so field going personnel can also benefit from these high resolution wind forecasts on their phones and tablets.
|WindWizard||Microscale wind simulator using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software.|
