Relating burning index to wildfire workload over broad geographic areas


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