Poster #88: James Powell – Assessing Fire Weather Conditions for Utility Operations

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: John Horel

The meteorological conditions near selected utility corridors in Utah have been examined. Current conditions were compared to those over periods as long as 20+ years and made available publicly through web pages (http://home.chpc.utah.edu/~u1269218/RMP/). Statistics for commonly used fire indices were also calculated from the station data, including the Fosberg Fire Weather Index and the Keetch-Byram Drought Index, and the Hot-Dry-Windy Index.
