Fire Danger Forecast
In a joint effort between the USGS and the U.S. Forest Service, the Fire Danger Forecasting Project focuses on research and development of digital map products suited for monitoring and forecasting fire potential within the conterminous U.S. The project maintains and operates an automated, daily production process which generates a suite of digital map products related to the forecasting of fire ignition and subsequent spread potential. These Fire Danger forecast products are made available for display and distribution through this website.
Fire Danger Forecasting utilizes a combination of satellite-derived vegetation indices, various biogeophysical variables, and weather information to produce 7-day forecast products for fire potential index, large fire probability, and fire spread probability.
