Fuels

The EFFIS fuel map was derived in the context of JRC Contract Number 384347 on the “Development of a European Fuel Map.” Although the original map contained 42 vegetation complexes, these were assigned to the 13 categories of the NFFL or fire behavior models (Anderson, 1982).  The last 3 categories of the NFFL models are not used in the European Fuel Map.

If the EFFIS fuel map is used, we suggest the following way to cite it:
