Title: Mapping Fuels Using Remote Sensing and Biophysical Modeling

Project Proposal Abstract: This fuels mapping project has one main objectives. To develop methods for creating spatial fuels layers for fire behavior and fire effects prediction systems and hazard and risk assessment The primary goal of this objective is to develop methods and protocols for creating high resolution fuels data layers for input to detailed fire management models. Secondary goals are to create fuels maps useful across all land management functions such as fire effects, site productivity, and smoke generation. This objective matches Principle Purpose 1 (Fuels Mapping) in the USD1-USDA Forest Service Joint Fire Science Plan. Development of procedures for creating multiple scale fire risk and hazard maps protocols matches Principle Purpose 2 and 3 (Fuels Evaluation and Scheduling) in the USDA Fire Science Plan.
