what is frcc
What is FRCC
  • Interagency, standardized tool.
  • “Measures the degree of departure from reference conditions, possibly resulting in changes to key ecosystem components, such as vegetation characteristics (species composition, structural stage, stand age, canopy closure, and mosaic pattern); fuel composition; fire frequency, severity, and pattern; and other associated disturbances, such as insect and disease mortality, grazing, and drought.”Interagency Fire Regime Condition Class Guidebook. Version 1.2 May 2005.
  • Guide Management Objectives
  • Set Priorities
why frcc
WHY FRCC?
  • Conforms to requirements associated with National Fire Plan
  • Required element for Fire Management Plans
  • Use of Standardized FRCC Evaluation law with Healthy Forest Restoration Act of 2003
methodology from interagency fire regime condition class guidebook
Methodology From Interagency Fire Regime Condition Class Guidebook
  • FRCC Toolkit
    • ArcGIS Application
    • Assesses Departure of vegetation-fuel classes
    • Produces spatial layers that correspond to FRCC Standard Landscape Worksheet Method.
    • Outputs can be assessed and QC’d against field data collected as part of Standard Landscape Worksheet Method.
landscape reporting levels
Landscape Reporting Levels
  • Landscape perspective before stand level analysis
  • Three different levels of landscape sizes
    • 4th level HUCs to 5th Level HUCs to 6th Level HUCs
  • Use 6th Level HUCs.

vegetation fuel classes
Vegetation-fuel Classes
  • Successional States
    • Combination of cover type (early-seral, mid-seral, and late-seral) and structural type (open or closed)
  • Compares existing vegetation-fuel classes in BpS with reference condition.
master grid
Master Grid
  • Contains all output data.
    • Organization and sorting of Data
stratum vegetation fuel class percent difference
Stratum Vegetation-fuel Class Percent Difference
  • Contrast between existing vegetation-fuel class and reference condition.
    • + value = over-represented
    • - value = under-represented
  • Most detailed information about status of vegetation-fuel class.

reports
Reports
  • Reporting Function of tool
    • Assists in identifying what would need to be accomplished if objective was to match reference conditions
  • Computes expected acreage of vegetation-fuel class from reference conditions
  • Subtracts existing acreage of each vegetation-fuel class
  • + Value = Vegetation-Fuel class under-represented
  • - Value = Vegetation-Fuel class over-represented
