Selecting a Weather Station (BFB & STFB)

The weather station you select for an Basic Fire Behavior (BFB) or Short Term Fire Behavior (STFB) analysis will generate the following three components that are required inputs for these models. Click a component below for considerations when selecting a weather station for that particular component:

BFB (gridded) and STFB (progression) outputs are both based on a 'snapshot in time;' they are run under a single weather and wind scenario that doesn't change from analysis start to analysis end.

To select a Weather Station (BFB & STFB, NTFB)

  1. Navigate to the analysis you want to select a weather station for and select it from the Analysis List.
  2. Locate the Station Information section of the analysis by:
    1. Clicking View Information > scroll to the bottom of the General Information section in the right window pane.
    2. From within an analysis, click (Model) Information in the left window pane >scroll to the bottom of the General Information section in the right window pane.
  3. Click the drop-down arrow beside the Station field, and select a weather station from the list. The weather station information populates for the selected station.
  4. Click Save. The weather station and associated station information is saved.
