Title: Predicting duff and woody fuel consumed by prescribed fire in the Northern Rocky Mountains

Author: Brown, James K.; Marsden, Michael A.; Ryan, Kevin C.; Reinhardt, Elizabeth D.

Date: 1985

Source: Res. Pap. INT-337. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station. 23 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Relationships for predicting duff reduction, mineral soil exposure, and consumption of downed woody fuel were determined to assist in planning prescribed fires. Independent variables included lower and entire duff moisture contents, loadings of downed woody fuels, duff depth, National Fire-Danger Rating System 1,000-hour moisture content, and Canadian Duff Moisture Codes. Results apply to a number of mesic forest cover types.

Keywords: fuel consumption, duff, downed woody fuel, forest fuels, prescribed fire
