Canopy Bulk Density LANDFIRE for Wyoming at 1:24,000

Summary

The LANDFIRE fuel data describe the composition and characteristics of both surface fuel and canopy fuel. Specific products include fire behavior fuel models, canopy bulk density (CBD), canopy base height (CBH), canopy cover (CC), canopy height (CH), and fuel loading models (FLMs). These data may be implemented within models to predict the behavior and effects of wildland fire. These data are useful for strategic fuel treatment prioritization and tactical assessment of fire behavior and effects. DATA SUMMARY: Canopy bulk density (CBD) is defined as the mass of available canopy fuel per unit canopy volume (Scott and Reinhardt 2001). A spatially explicit map of canopy bulk density supplies information used in fire behavior models such [...]
