LANDFIRE Remap Anderson Fire Behavior Fuel Model (FBFM13) Marshall Islands

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

LANDFIRE’s (LF) 2016 Remap (Remap) Anderson Fire Behavior Fuel Model 13 (FBFM13) product represents distinct distributions of fuel loadings found among surface fuel components (live and dead), size classes, and fuel types (Anderson 1982). The fuel models are described by the most common fire carrying fuel type (grass, brush, timber, or slash), loading and surface area-to-volume ratio by size class and component, fuel bed depth, and moisture of extinction. FBFM13 can be used for fire spread related characteristic models. LF Remap used vegetation products and 10-years of disturbance data to create Fuel Vegetation Type (FVT), Fuel Vegetation Cover (FVC), and Fuel Vegetation Height (FVH) for disturbed areas to represent pre-disturbance scenarios in FBFM13. A combination of pre-disturbance and non-disturbance Existing Vegetation Type (EVT) are used to assign surface fuel models. FBFM13 was developed using the most recent 10 years of Annual Disturbance products and is a capable fuels product that calculates Time Since Disturbance (TSD) assignments for disturbed areas using an "effective year." For example, year 2020 fuels may be calculated for the year 2020. the new process considers all the existing disturbances included in LF Remap and adjusts the TSD for these to the effective year (2020 in the example), making the products "2020 capable fuels." More information about capable fuels can be found at
