By US Department of Agriculture, Forest Service. A modeling framework designed to predict cumulative impacts of smoke from forest, agricultural, and range fires. The BlueSky smoke modeling framework combines emissions, meteorology, and dispersion models to generate predictions of smoke impacts across the landscape.
By US Department of Agriculture, Forest Service. Input fuel characteristics, lighting patterns, fuel conditions, and meteorological attributes, then CONSUME outputs fuel consumption and emissions by combustion phase. CONSUME is designed to import data directly from the Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCS), and the output is formatted to feed other models and provide usable outputs for burn plan preparation and smoke management requirements.
Dangerous Goods Manual App
By Knorre. The Dangerous Goods Manual Android App helps you identify hazardous materials (HazMat). Includes ERI-Cards (Emergency Response Intervention Cards) for guidance on initial actions for fire crews.
Fire Emission Production Simulator (FEPS)
By US Department of Agriculture, Forest Service. Manages data concerning consumption, emissions and heat release characteristics of prescribed burns and wildland fires.
Fire Regime Condition Class (FRCC)
By FRCC Interagency Working Group. A tool for determining the degree of departure from reference condition vegetation, fuels and disturbance regimes. Assessing FRCC can help guide management objectives and set priorities for treatments.
By NOVA Online. Video: How much do forest fires contribute to global warming?
By National Institute of Standards and Technology. FIREDOC is a complete fire research bibliographic database with 80,000 holdings (published reports, journal articles, conference proceedings, books, and audiovisual items). Each reference has complete bibliographic information.
Fuel Characteristic Classification System (FCCS)
By US Department of Agriculture, Forest Service. Characterizes and classifies fuelbeds to capture the structural complexity and geographical diversity of fuel components across landscapes and provide the ability to assess elements of human (e.g. logging slash) and natural (e.g. insect and disease) change. Also available as PDF file.
Landscape Management System (LMS)
By University of Washington, Yale University, and USDA Forest Service. Assists in landscape level analysis and planning of forest ecosystems by automating the tasks of stand projection, graphical and tabular summarization, stand visualization, and landscape visualization. LMS is comprised of many separate programs that make projections, produce graphical or tabular displays, store inventory information, and connect these diverse programs into a cohesive system.
MediaLab OSHA Fire Safety
By MediaLab, Inc.. This basic course describes the three common classes of fire; tells how to guard against fires in the workplace; and describes the correct procedure for handling a fire emergency.
