Information Report ST-X 64 p. The Canadian Forest Fire Behavior Prediction (FBP) System is a subsystem of the larger Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System, which also includes the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index (FWI) System.

The FBP System provides quantitative estimates of head fire spread rate, fuel consumption, fire intensity, and fire description; with the aid of an elliptical fire. Background Information Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index (FWI) System Summary. The Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index (FWI) System consists of six components that account for the effects of fuel moisture and wind on fire behavior.

The first three components, the fuel moisture codes, are numeric ratings of the moisture content of litter and other fine fuels, the.

Van Wagner, C.E., Development and Structure of the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index System. Forestry Technical Report Forestry Technical Report Canadian Forest Service, Ottawa, Canada. The Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) is the national system for rating fire danger in Canada.

The Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index (FWI) System is a sub-system of the CFFDRS and has been in its present form sincewith the fourth version of the tables for the Fire Behavior Indexes Structure of the Canadian Forest File Size: KB.

The Canadian Wildland Fire Information System monitors fire danger conditions and fire occurrence across Canada. Daily weather conditions are collected from across Canada and used to produce fire weather and fire behavior maps.

In addition, satellites are used to detect fires, and reported fire locations are collected from fire management agencies. "Understanding Fire Regimes and the Ecological Effects of Fire" In Fire Phenomena and the Earth System: An Interdisciplinary Guide to Fire Science.

In this study outputs from four current General Circulation Models (GCMs) were used to project forest fire danger levels in Canada and Russia under a warmer climate.

Temperature and precipitation anomalies between 1 × CO2 and 2 × CO2 runs were combined with baseline observed weather data for both countries for the – period.

The Forest fire weather index (FWI) (French: indice forêt météo, IFM) is an estimation of the risk of wildfire computed by Météo France and the Meteorological Service of was introduced in France in but is based on a Canadian empirical.

The Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) is a globally known wildland fire risk assessment system, and two major components, the fire weather index system and the fire behavior prediction system, have been extensively used both nationally and internationally to aid operational wildland fire decision making.

In this paper, we present an Cited by: In Canadian forests, the majority of burned area occurs on a small number of days of extreme fire weather. These days lie within the tail end of the distribution of fire weather, and are often the periods when fire suppression capacity is most challenged.

We examined the historic and future frequency of such extreme fire weather events across 16 fire regime zones in the.

The Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index System The FWI System (Van Wagner, ) is one of the most com-monly used FDRSs globally (Taylor and Alexander, ; Lawson and Armitage, ), though it was originally de-veloped for use in Canadian jack/lodgepole pine forest en-vironments.

The FWI System consists of six components,Cited by: 9. Changes in the fire regime may have a significant impact on the composition, structure, and functioning of Canadian forests. Because the fire regime responds almost immediately to changes in the climate, the fire regime may act as a catalyst for change in Canadian by: The weather data (temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and precipitation) were used to calculate fire weather indices following the Canadian.

We want to assure our visitors that we are monitoring the situation closely and doing all we can to protect the public and our staff.In this paper we use an index called the seasonal severity rating (SSR) to examine changes in fire severity on the landscape.

The SSR is a final component of the Canadian forest fire weather index (FWI) system (Van Wagner, ). This SSR index is a seasonal mean of the daily estimate of the control difficulty of a potential fire which, in turn Cited by: This assessment utilizes the Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) which has proven to correlate well to the Alaska fire environment.
