An overview of the coupled atmosphere-wildland fire model WRF-Fire [article]

Jan Mandel, Jonathan D. Beezley, Adam K. Kochanski
2011 arXiv   pre-print
We describe the coupled atmosphere-wildfire model WRF-Fire, which is distributed as a part of WRF. The fire module is based on a fire-spread model, implemented by the level-set method.  ...  In each time step, the fire module takes the wind as input and returns the latent and sensible heat fluxes. We report on the software architecture and features of the software.  ...  John Michalakes developed the support for the refined surface fire grid in WRF.  ...
