cffdrs : R package

cffdrs: an R package for the Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System

The cffdrs package allows R users to calculate the outputs of the two main components of the Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS): the Fire Weather Index (FWI) System and the Fire Behaviour Prediction (FBP). These systems are widely used internationally to assess fire danger (FWI System) and quantify fire behaviour (FBP System).
