WFDSS STFB - What it does (outputs)

Following 7 days of fuel moisture conditioning, the WFDSS Short-Term Fire Behavior (STFB) model uses one set of gridded wind and fuel moisture conditions (based on the analysis start time) for the simulation duration to calculate and display two fire spread outputs:

STFB outputs with arrival time and major path

In addition to the fire spread outputs described above, when a STFB analysis is conducted, Basic Fire Behavior (BFB) "snap shot in time" outputs are also calculated for the defined landscape extent using the start date and time, and are available for display.

Note: The Wind Direction and Wind Speed outputs are a product of WindWizard. These 20' gridded wind values are used as an input for STFB, but STFB itself does not produce wind direction or wind speed outputs.
