Title: Enhancing the Online Hand-Piled Fuels Biomass Calculator

Project Proposal Abstract: Land managers need a tool to accurately and efficiently estimate the biomass of hand- and machine-piled fuels as pile burning becomes a more widespread and common method for treating high fire hazard areas with heavy surface fuels. This proposal is to incorporate the calculation methods for machine piles into the online Hand-piled Fuels Biomass Calculator. The results of this proposed application development project will allow land managers to more accurately assess biomass in all pile types leading to better smoke production estimates, improved burn scheduling, and more accurate compliance with the maximum allowable emissions limits as determined by various state smoke management plans. The deliverable product is an improved pile biomass and emissions calculator capable of: (1) accepting hand- and machine-constructed pile inputs, (2) batch processing pile input data, and (3) use in as a desktop application.
