Title: Bald Mountain Fire, Eagle Cap Wilderness Area, Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, FARSITE analysis

Author: Hollingsworth, LaWen

Date: 2012

Source: Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, Fire Sciences Laboratory. 4 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous

Description: While the Near Term Fire Behavior analysis option in WFDSS is similar to FARSITE, the advantage of using FARSITE lies in the ability to use gridded winds which produces more reliable fire behavior results in complex terrain. A couple of FARSITE simulations were completed to evaluate fire growth and fire behavior in relation to the values, notably Red's Horse Ranch and the Minam Lodge.

Keywords: Near Term Fire Behavior analysis, WFDSS, FARSITE, Bald Mountain Fire
