In the frame of the project ALPFFIRS(external link), the Swiss federal institute of forest, snow and landscape research WSL(external link), with the collaboration of the project partners, has set up this wiki on fire weather indices.
The aim of this wiki is to provide a public reference information on the mostly used fire weather indices, with detailed informations on indices purpose, applicability (validity, starting conditions, ...), implementations (modifications) and an exhaustive literature.
At the same time the WSL is developing an open source software application for the calculation of the most used fire weather indices.
