The Science Behind WFA Pocket: WFA Pocket uses concepts and formulas developed by the US Forest Service Missoula Fire Sciences Lab to perform fire behavior calculations. It is a culmination of the wonderful science made possible by the work of applied wildfire scientists and wildland firefighters across the world. WFA Pocket compiles knowledge gained from the five plus decades of applied research on wildfire behavior, and is intended to serve as a companion to the Fire Behavior Field Reference Guide (PMS 437).
Technosylva acknowledges the outstanding research conducted by the Missoula Fire Sciences Lab, the Rocky Mountain Research Station, and the many other scientists and practitioners who have pioneered much of this science.
WFA Pocket fire behavior calculations and outputs are viewed in an intuitive 3D map interface allowing the user to interactively change parameters and see results on the map in real-time.
