This publication is the fourth edition of tables for calculating the six standard components of the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index System. The first three components are fuel moisture codes that follow daily changes in the moisture contents of three classes of forest fuel; the final three are fire behavior indexes that represent rate of spread, amount of available fuel, and fire intensity. The system provides a uniform method of rating fire danger across Canada.
