Description
 
Joe H. Scott & Elizabeth D. Reinhardt. Fire managers are increasingly concerned about the threat of crown fires (CF), yet only now are quantitative methods for assessing CF hazard being developed. Links among existing mathematical models of fire behavior are used to develop two indices of CF hazard -- the Torching Index & Crowning Index. These indices can be used to coordinate different forest stands by their relative susceptibility to CF & to compare the effective. of CF mitigation treat. The coupled model was used to simulate the wide range of fire behavior possible in a forest stand for the purpose of comparing potential fire behavior. The concepts will apply to models for other regions & new models.
