Tools/datasets used in WFEIS

Fuelbed map (CONUS): LANDFIRE EVT and FCCS
Fuelbed map (Canada): Fuel Behavior Prediction fuel types map
Fuelbed map (global): Global Fuelbed Dataset (Pettinari and Chuvieco 2016)
Emissions software: Fuel & Fire Tools (FFT; includes FCCS and CONSUME)
Emission factors: Smoke Emissions Reference Application (SERA; used in CONSUME)
Fuel moisture data: gridMET (used for 1000-hr fuel moisture for CONUS)
Fuel moisture data: Global Fire WEather Database (GFWED; used for duff and litter moisture input as well as 1000-hr fuel moisture inputs for non-CONUS burns)
