Description

This dataset provides daily fire weather indices for interior Alaska during the active fire seasons from 2001 to 2010. Data are gridded at 60-m resolution. The active fire season is defined as May 24-September 18 (days of the year 144-261) in this dataset. Fire weather is the use of meteorological parameters such as relative humidity, wind speed and direction, cloud cover, mixing heights, and soil moisture to determine whether conditions are favorable for fire growth and smoke dispersion. The six indices provided in this dataset are defined and produced following the methodology of the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index System: Fine Fuel Moisture Code, Duff Moisture Code, Drought Code, Initial Spread Index, Buildup Index, Fire Weather Index. The dataset was developed following point source data interpolation from weather station observations.
