Publication Series: Paper (invited, offered, keynote)

Description: Needs for analytical tools, the roles existing tools play, the processes they represent, and how they might interact are elements of key findings generated during a workshop held in Seattle February 17-18, 1999. The workshop was attended by 26 Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) stakeholders and researchers. A focus of the workshop was the Fire and Fuels Extension to the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FFE-FVS). Gaps in required capabilities are exposed where indicators (e.g., model outputs), processes, or linkages needed to address stakeholder requirements are missing. The workshop process provided a rigorous method of identifying missing elements. The Fuel Characteristic Classes (FCC) proposed by Ottmar and Sandberg (1999) may become a common data element used to link many models.

Keywords: models, fire management, fuel management, workshops
