Description: The group classified a continental-scale vegetation map (National Vegetation Information Systems, version 3.1), defining classes based on typical fuel (e.g. litter, grass, shrubs) and fire types (e.g. surface, crown, ground). Classes were intersected with a broad climate classification to derive a map of twenty broad fire regimes.
