This manual documents the procedures for estimating the rate of forward spread, intensity, flame length, and size of fires burning in forests and rangelands. It con- tains instructions for obtaining fuel and weather data, calculating fire behavior, and interpreting the results for application to actual fire problems. Potential uses include fire prediction, fire planning, dispatching, pre- scribed fires, and monitoring managed fires. Included are sections that deal with fuel model selec- tion, fuel mOisture, wind, slope, calculations with nomo- grams, TI-59 calculations, point source, line fire, inter- pretations of outputs, and growth predictions.
