An empirical estimation of live fuel moisture content (FMC) was generated from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration - Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer derived variables. This estimation was based on the ratio of Normalized Difference Vegetation Index and surface temperature, and the relative greenness. It was derived for the summer season (from June to September).
