Title: Using HFire for spatial modeling of fire in shrublands

Author: Peterson, Seth H.; Morais, Marco E.; Carlson, Jean M.; Dennison, Philip E.; Roberts, Dar A.; Moritz, Max A.; Weise, David R.

Date: 2009

Source: Res. Pap. PSW-RP-259. Albany, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station. 44 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: An efficient raster fire-spread model named HFire is introduced. HFire can simulate single-fire events or long-term fire regimes, using the same fire-spread algorithm. This paper describes the HFire algorithm, benchmarks the model using a standard set of tests developed for FARSITE, and compares historical and predicted fire spread perimeters for three southern California fires. HFire is available for download at http://firecenter.berkeley.edu/hfire.

Keywords: Fire spread model, raster, Rothermel, wildfire, southern California, chaparral
