    Description

    In 1964, Stockstad and Barney published tables that provided conversion factors for calculating local fire danger in the Intermountain area according to fuel types, locations, steepness of terrain, aspects, and times of day. These tables were based on the National Fire-Danger Rating System published earlier that year. This system was adopted for operational use in Forest Service Regions 1 (Northern) and 4 (Intermountain) in 1965. These tables have since been incorporated into operating procedures of several Forest Service Regions and other forest protection agencies.
