Description

These high-resolution Annualized Wildfire Hazard data are produced using California Forest Observatory canopy and surface fuels data and hourly climatology corresponding to a single historical year. These data, along with topography, are used to drive Monte Carlo wildfire ignition and spread simulations using the ELMFIRE wildfire spread model. The model produces burn probability and burn severity (90th percentile flame length), which are multiplied, then normalized to create a statewide wildfire hazard layer.
