Title: Modification and Validation of Fuel Consumption Models for Shrub and Forested Lands in the Southwest, Pacific Northwest, Rockies, Midwest, Southeast and Alaska

Project Proposal Abstract: Objective The primary objective of the fuel consumption project is: Improve existing models to better predict fuel consumption during the smoldering phase of wildland fires; develop new fuel consumption models for shrubland hardwood, and boreal forest fuel types; implement modified and new consumption equations into Consume 3.0; and validate current consumption equations in Consume 2.0, Burnup, and FOFEM. The primary goals of this objective are to: (1) provide improved operation of fire behavior, fire effects prediction systems, wildland fire tradeoff models, and emission production models; (2) provide improved wildland fire emission tracking ability; and (3) provide the basic fuel consumption algorithms for large landscape and global assessments.
