3D Fuel Modeling Helps Predict Fire Behavior

Land managers have a new tool in their firefighting arsenals that models forest fuels in three dimensions. These 3D fuel models have the potential to make firefighting and the management of controlled burns safer and less costly while helping to protect valuable natural resources. The 3D fuels modeling technique will benefit land managers by allowing firefighters to develop better strategies […]
