A model for predicting lightning fire ignition in wildland fuels


A model for predicting lightning fire ignition in wildland fuels



Research Paper, Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, USDA Forest Service (INT-217): 21



The model is based on the physical processes involved in the ignition of fine woody fuels by lightning and the chance occurrence of simultaneous events required for fire ignition. Input includes lightning activity, upper air windspeed (storm movement), fuel moisture, and fuel bulk density.
