Wildfire Containment Suitability Mapping
Track: Wildland Fire Management
Authors: Anthony Shafer
My objective is threefold: 1. I identify the landscape features that provide for the containment of wildfire in the urban interface. 2. After the features are identified, suitability maps are developed that categorize and rate those locations with the highest probability of wildfire containment, given fire suppression forces. 3. Using FlamMap modeling, this project identifies and prioritizes specific locations for mitigation that would strengthen the more established containment features.
