A simple method for assessing fuel moisture content and fire danger rating
The flammability of wildland vegetation is strongly dependent upon the moisture content of fine dead fuels. Consequently, assessing the moisture content of these fuels to within a reasonable degree of accuracy is an important part of wildland fire management. Estimates of fine fuel moisture content can also be combined with information on wind speed, vegetation type and drought effects to provide a measure of fire potential or fire danger rating. For example, the moisture content of eucalypt...[Show more]
