        Complete Forest Inventory and Analysis (FIA) National Program field measurements for the four states were available for the period Aboveground biomass (AGB) was calculated from tree lists at the FIA plots using the default equations in the Fire and Fuels Extension of the Forest Vegetation Simulator. Duncan's background is in fuels. He has been involved in the development of the First Order Fire Effects Model, the Fire and Fuels Extension to the Forest Vegetation Simulator, FIREMON, Fuel Loading Models, FFI, and FuelCalc.

      In forested EVTs, most of the transitions were developed using the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) model, along with the Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE) model for fire simulations. These simulations were run on approximat forested plots for all FVS variants nationwide. The Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) and its associated Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE) have been used to provide information required by larger software systems like the Interagency Fuels Treatment - Decision Support System (IFT-DSS). Interacting with FVS in an automated fashion has been difficult, and simulations with very large numbers of stands, such as those .

Abstract—The Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE) to the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) simulates fuel dynamics and potential fire behavior over time, in the context of stand develop-ment and management.

This chapter provides an introduction to the model by illustrating its purpose and chronicling some of the applications it has by: The Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) is a forest growth simulation model.

It simulates forest vegetation change in response to natural succession, disturbances, and management. It recognizes all major tree species and can simulate nearly any type of management or disturbance at any time during the simulation. Outputs include tree volumes. The Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE) to the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) simulates fuel dynamics and potential fire behavior over time, in the context of stand development and management.

Existing models of fire behavior and fire effects were added to FVS to form the FFE extension. From the Introduction 'The Fire and fuels Extension (FFE) has been developed for 18 of the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) variants: Northern Idaho, Kookantl, Central Rockies, Utah, Eastern Montana, Western Sierra, Blue Mountains, Eastern Cascades, Central Idaho, Tetons, Southern Oregon/Northern California, Klamath Mountains, Inland California and Southern.

The Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE) to the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) simulates fuel dynamics and potential fire behaviour over time, in the context of stand development and management. The Fire Effects Model Extension is a new extension to FVS and the PPE that allows users to simulate the effects of fire on a number of indicators.

The Fire and Fuels Extension to the Forest Vegetation Simulator is a model that simulates fuel dynamics and potential fire behavior over time, in the context of stand development and management.

Existing models are used to represent forest stand development (the Forest Vegetation Simulator, Wykoff and others ), fire behavior (RothermelVan Wagner.

The Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE) to the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) simulates fuel dynamics and potential fire behaviour over time, in the context of stand development and management.

Existing models of fire behavior and fire effects were added to FVS to form this extension. New submodels representing snag and fuel dynamics were created to complete. Recent fire and fuels research relevant to planning and implementing forest/fuels treatments revolve around three main topics: (1) potential limitations in the widely used Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE) module of the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS), (2) designing effective fuels treatment placement in landscapes under real world constraints.

The Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS) is the U.S. Forest Service’s nationally supported framework for forest growth and yield modeling. At its core, FVS The Fire and Fuels extension (FFe) Fire is a component of many forest ecosystems, and the Fire and Fuels Extension (FFE) (Reinhardt.

Fire effects are calculated using the Fire and Fuels Extension to FVS (FFE) using fire behavior (flame length) calculated by FSim.

The Fire and Fuels Extension to the Forest Vegetation Simulator is a model that simulates fuel dynamics and potential fire behavior over time, in the context of stand development and management.Stand Level Carbon Reporting Using the Forest. Vegetation Simulator (FVS) The ability to create stand level carbon stock estimates is now fully integrated into the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVS), allowing users to produce carbon reports along with traditional FVS output.

This added capability can be easily used by managers who are current FVS.The Fire and Fuels Extension of the Forest Vegetation Simulator (FFE-FVS) was used to calulate the immediate effects of treatments on surface fuels, fire hazard, potential fire behavior, and forest structure for respresentative dry forest stands in the Western United States.

Treatments considered included pile and burn and prescribed fire.
