The Western USA Live Fuel Moisture is a dataset manually collected in the western United States by the United States Forest Service. Live fuel moisture represents the mass of water in live vegetation elements like leaves, needles, and twigs divided by its oven-dried mass in percentage. It is an indicator which can be used for wildfire assessment. This collection has been rasterized from the original vector data (points) at 10 m resolution to be paired with Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 imagery.
The Western USA Live Fuel Moisture contains in situ live fuel moisture measurements and other information regarding the measurement site.
