Abstract

The foliar moisture content (FMC) of coniferous trees is estimated within the context of the Canadian Forest Fire Behavior Prediction System on the basis of an empirical method that is limited to the forest regions of Canada and immediately adjacent areas of the United States. This paper offers both a review and simple recommendations for obtaining the FMC input in cases where the system is applied outside of Canada in both the northern and southern hemispheres.
