Fuel consumption predictions are necessary to accurately estimate or model fire effects, including pollutant emissions, during wildland fires. We collected fuel and environmental measurements on a series of operational prescribed fires in big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentate Nutt.) ecosystems throughout the intermountain west: California, Oregon, Nevada, Wyoming, and Montana. Field measurements took place on operational prescribed fires at 26 sites in 11 operational burn units from September 2001 through April 2004 and included pre-fire fuel loading composition and arrangement, day-of-burn fuel and weather conditions, and fuel consumption.
