First Order Fire Effects Model (FOFEM)

FOFEM, or First Order Fire Effects Model provides quantitative information on tree mortality, fuel consumption, mineral soil exposure and heating, and emissions.

FOFEM uses geographical regions and forest cover types to determine the algorithm it will use for predictions, as well as fill certain default values.
