Rate of Speed

Metadata Updated: June 25, 2014

Rate of spread was modeled using FlamMap, an interagency fire behavior mapping and analysis program that computes potential fire behavior characteristics. The tool uses eight spatial input data layers to represent biophysical conditions and weather parameters to simulate wind and fuel moisture conditions. The spatial input layers were created by Landscape Fire and Resource Management Planning Tools Project (LANDFIRE) and include elevation, slope, aspect, canopy closure, fuel model 40 (using 40 fuel models described by Scott and Burgan, 2005), canopy base height, and canopy bulk density. The weather parameters were collected from the RAWS weather stations in New Mexico. Rate of Spread was modeled by individual fire zones, created by the Southwest Coordination Center (SWCC). The weather data for the northern and western fire zones (101, 102, 103, 109, 110, and 113) represents the average early summer (May and June) conditions; the weather data for the eastern fire zones (104, 108, 114, 115) represents the average early spring (March and April ) conditions; and the weather data for the southern and central fire zones (105, 106, 107, 111, 112) represents the average spring (April and May) conditions.
