! SFIRE - Spread fire model in WRF-Fire ! !*** Jan Mandel August 2007 - March 2011 !*** email: Jan.Mandel@gmail.com ! For support please go to ! http://www.openwfm.org/wiki/WRF-Fire_user_support ! Current user's guide can be found at ! http://www.openwfm.org/wiki/Users_guide ! For reference publications see ! http://www.openwfm.org/wiki/WRF-Fire_publications ! A limited version from 2010 is included in WRF release. We no longer ! support that version. ! This module is the only entry point from WRF-ARW to the wildland ! fire model. The call to sfire_driver advances the fire model by ! one timestep. The fire model inputs the wind and outputs ! temperature and humidity tendencies. The fire model also inputs a ! number of constant arrays (fuel data, topography). Additional ! arguments are model state (for data assimilation) and constant arrays ! the model gives to WRF for safekeeping because it is not allowed ! to save anything. ! This code as of mid-2011 is described in . If you use this code, ! please acknowledge our work by citing . ! Thank you. ! Acknowledgements ! ! The fire physics code is adapted from the CAWFE code . ! The coupling with WRF is adapted from a code by Ned Patton, ! coupling a Fortran 90 port of the CAWFE fire module to WRF . ! Support of refined fire grids in WRF was provided by John Michalakes. ! Jonathan D. Beezley has set up and maintained the WRF build and ! execution environment, provided software engineering infrastructure ! including synchronization with the WRF repository, and was responsibe ! for all aspects of WRF modification. UCD students Minjeong Kim and ! Volodymyr Kondratenko have contributed to the implementation of the ! fire propagation by the level set method. ! Refefences ! !  Jan Mandel, Jonathan D.
