Webinars: FlamMap 6.0 and NFDRS 2016

FlamMap 6.0 Fire Modeling System

January 22, 2020 11:00 MST


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 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). 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. 

Chuck McHugh, Fire Spatial Analyst with the USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station will present the webinar. For more information and to register, visit this link.

An Intro to the New U.S. National Fire Danger Rating System

February 5, 2020 11:00 MST


Matt Jolly, Research Ecologist (USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station) will present the structure and function of the current version of the US National Fire Danger Rating System, NFDRS2016. He will show how this system can be used to assess seasonal variations in fuel moisture and fire potential and how it can be used to quantify fire season severity anywhere in the country. Jolly will demonstrate the use of FireFamily+ Version 5.0 to explore local fire weather conditions and he will suggest ways to use both tabular and graphical displays to communicate fire danger conditions to a variety of audiences such as firefighters, Incident Management Team members, fire management officers, line officers and the public. Finally, he will introduce new spatial fire danger assessment tools and discuss the future of NFDRS.
