Fuels Measure helps scientists use the planar intercept method (a.k.a. Brown’s transect) to measure woody surface fuels. Fuels Measure calculates the volume and weight of downed woody material to estimate fire behavior, smoke production, biomass, carbon storage, and wildlife habitat. Fuels Measure provides a step-by-step approach to tallying fuels by size class, entering log diameter and decay class, and recording litter and duff depths in either metric or U.S. units. Fuels Measure is fully functional in remote locations. User data are stored locally and backed up to the cloud as soon as the device connects to the internet. Fuels Measure assigns meaningful names and relationships to data and georeferenced photos within .csv files which are recognized by Excel or database programs. Photos and data are easy to share with flexible output formats throughout the application.
