    Description

    The demand for strategic planning tools that account for climate and human influences on wildfire hazard is growing. In response, the University of Arizona, through an EPA STAR Grant has undertaken interdisciplinary research to characterize the human and climate dimensions of wildfire. The resulting Fire-Climate-Society (FCS-1) prototype model developed for Sky Islands in southeastern Arizona (Catalina/Rincons, Huachucas, Chiricahuas) addresses both the biophysical elements of wildfire probability and the human elements of values-at-risk. An online, spatially explicit application will allow users to choose climate-based scenarios, weight model components through a multi-criteria decision process, and then create spatially explicit maps for dynamic strategic planning.
