10-1-02 Canopy fuels estimation More Information Actions
Conifer canopy fuels estimation -- More accurate canopy biomass parameter estimates are needed to ensure fuel treatments achieve their intended effects, and that fire behavior predictions are well-founded. Better canopy biomass estimates may also improve carbon accounting assessments. The Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) is interested in funding proposals that assess the significance and extent of this problem, and produce data that can be used to improve conifer canopy fuel estimates in regions where canopy fuel treatments are widespread.
