        “We’re trying to change fire behavior,” he says, “to make it easier to put the fire out, to give people more time to evacuate.” We drive along the ridgeline and re-enter the park, and into what looks and feels like a vast eucalyptus forest.

Highlights Empirical fire behaviour models to predict potential fire spread in eucalypt forest. Fuel variables needed are visual fuel hazard ratings and fuel height.

Models tested with fire behaviour data from wildfires and other experimental fires. Assigned reliability ratings to fuel, weather and spread data for model validation. Spread models perform well against wildfire data when the data Cited by: Forest Fire Danger Index Calculated using the McArthur Mk 5 Forest Fire Danger Meter.
