Assessment of the FARSITE model for predicting fire behavior in the Southern Appalachian Mountains



Assessment of the FARSITE model for predicting fire behavior in the Southern Appalachian Mountains



General Technical Report Southern Research Station, USDA Forest Service (SRS-92): 521-525



Fuel reduction treatments are necessary in fire-adapted ecosystems where fire has been excluded for decades and the potential for severe wildfire is high. Using the Fire Area Simulator, FARSITE, the spatial and temporal effects of these treatments on fire behaviour in the Southern Appalachian Mountains (Green River Game Lands in Polk County, North Carolina, USA) were examined.
