Terrestrial Condition Assessment (TCA) Wildfire Hazard Potential Fire Regime Groups 1 and 2 (Map Service)

dataset
posted on 2024-06-05, 12:40 authored by U.S. Forest Service
The 2018 Wildland Hazard Potential (WHP) represents areas of uncharacteristic fuel buildup. The WFP is a raster geospatial product produced by the USFS Fire Modeling Institute in the Fire, Fuel, and Smoke Program. Higher values have a higher probability of high-intensity fire, with torching, crowning, and other forms of extreme fire behavior. Data used represent areas classified as  high  or  very high  hazard. The LANDFIRE Fire Regime Groups (FRG) raster dataset (US_140FRG_10252017) was used to identify moderate fire regimes (Regimes I and II). Fire regime groups represent expected historical fire regimes based on interactions between vegetation dynamics, fire spread, fire effects, and spatial context. The definitions of the regimes are outlined in the Interagency Fire Regime Condition Class Guidebook. The data for this indicator represent areas identified as having  high  or  very high  wildland hazard potential and fire regime groups I and II.
