DescriptionThis study compares pre-fire field inventory data (collected from 1993 to 1997) in relation to post-fire mapped fire severity classes and the Fire and Fuels Extension of the Forest Vegetation Simulator growth and yield model measures of fire hazard for the portion of the Siskiyou National Forest in the 2002 Biscuit fire perimeter of southwestern Oregon. Post-fire severity classes are related to pre-fire torching indexes, and torching indexes seem to be correlated with the pre-fire volume of stands. Our analysis represents an initial look at fire severity, hazard, and forest attributes.
