Forest fuel environments vary considerably within the IDF forests in Central BC. Fuel inventory data was collected in four IDF fuel environment variants and compiled for entry in the Fuels Characteristics Classification System. Fuelbeds were created in FCCS for each variant in order to compare attributes in each fuel stratum and evaluate potential fire behaviour in these variants. The FCCS outputs for the variants were also compared to outputs of a fuelbed created for a C-7 FBP fuel type.

Can I just say what a relief to find an individual who actually knows what they are discussing on the net. You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people need to check this out and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you are not more popular because you certainly possess the gift.
