Automated BFB - What it is

WFDSS Automated Basic Fire Behavior (BFB) is a web-based fire behavior application. It gives "snapshot in time" fire behavior outputs (flame lengths, rates of spread, fireline intensities, etc.) for an entire user-defined landscape extent using one set (per cell) of wind and fuel moisture conditions.  WFDSS BFB can be thought of as a "spatial BEHAVE or BehavePlus".  Using fuels, topography, and weather data, fire behavior characteristics are calculated and displayed for every cell of the landscape extent.
