Relating burning index to wildfire workload over broad geographic areas

, : Relating burning index to wildfire workload over broad geographic areas. International Journal of Wildland Fire 1(4): 235-238

The burning index of the US National Fire Danger Rating System is designed to measure potential fire workload over broad geographic areas that can be represented as being homogenous with respect to fuel, topography and weather. The utility of this index was confirmed by its relation to 3 measures of fire workload (number of fires, area burned and number of personnel used in fire suppression) for 4 national forests in southern California.

Anonymous, 2013: Matrix modelling of prescribed burning in Calluna vulgaris-dominated moorland short burning rotations minimize carbon loss at increased wildfire frequencies. Moorlands store large amounts of carbon providing a valuable ecosystem service. In the UK, prescribed burning is often used to manage moorlands, which can produce both positive (biodiversity enhancement and wildfire prevention) and negative impact...
