Current Fire Regime and Vegetation Departure
See metadata (FGDC section) for complete information about this layer - https://landscape.blm.gov/COP_2010_metadata/COP_FI_C_FireRegDep_30m.xml This dataset depicts fire regime departure and vegetation departure for the Colorado Plateau Ecoregion.
Vegetation departure was derived directly from the LANDFIRE Fire Regime Departure Index (v1.0) dataset; it represents a measure of how current proportions of various successional states for each Biophysical Settings compare to those proportions expected under current conditions. It is not (contrary to its name), a direct measure of fire regime departure.
To improve this estimate of fire regime and vegetation departure, and more directly acount for fire regime departure, fire regime experts provided current estimates of fire regime parameters (fire frequency and severity). We used these estimates to derive measures of fire regime departure using FRCC Guidebook methods (www.frcc.gov), and calculated the maximum between fire regime and vegetation departure.
This effort was limited to the major Biophysical Settings in this ecoregion; due to time constraints, small Biophysical Settings were not evaluated for current fire regime, and only show a vegetation departure value.
For additional detail about the current fire regime estimates and depature values by Biophysical Settings, please see the associated spreadsheet in the documentation folder.
