The Forest Canopy Height (CH) layer describes the average height of the top of the vegetated canopy and is provided for forested areas only. CH measurement units are meters * 10.
CH is generated using a predictive modeling approach that relates Landsat imagery and spatially explicit biophysical gradients to calculated values of average dominant height from field training sites.
CH supplies information to fire behavior models to determine the probability of crown fire initiation, provide input in the spotting model, calculate wind reductions, and compute the volume of crown fuel.
