Description: Fuel moisture estimates generated by the National Fire-Danger Rating System procedure were compared with actual fuel moisture measurements determined from laboratory analysis. Meteorological data required for the NFDRS procedure were collected at two heights to assess the effect of temperature and humidity lapse rates. Standard measurements gave the best results, but use of a xeric hygrometer showed promise of giving reliable fuel moisture estimates by a simple linear regression.
Keywords: fuel moisture estimation, National Fire Danger Rating System, hygrometrix, xeric hygrometers, sampling
