Q. In what units are LANDFIRE Canopy Base Height (CBH) and Canopy Bulk Density (CBD) measured?
Canopy base height is measured in units of meters * 10. Thus, a
value of 5 on the CBH grid layer is actually 0.5 meters. Canopy Bulk
Density is measured in units of Kg m-3
* 100. Thus, a value of
6 on the CBD grid layer is actually 0.06 Kg m-3
. The multipliers augment the
raw units to facilitate implantation in FARSITE and FlamMap. Full descriptions of the CBH and CBD products
can be found in the Data Products: National
