4 GEOG 373 Applied Climatology Prometheus – Canadian Wildland Fire Model System Prometheus Lab 2: Running simple fire scenarios in Prometheus 50 marks total. This lab will be double weighted but you will have 2 weeks to complete. Objectives: 1. Improve familiarity with Prometheus data input requirements. 2. Understand the preparation and application of different wx scenarios. 3. Begin learning the Prometheus interface. 4. Observe the effect of different wind/humidity conditions on fire response. How to prepare weather data. You will be provided with four wx scenarios, but you need to give some thought as to how you might have to do that for yourself. These will be files you will use to evaluate the impact on a wildfire of changing different weather-based parameters. We will focus on wind speed and relative humidity. The experimental design will take the form of a matrix: Experiment Name Table Low wind speed High wind speed Low RH LWLR HWLR High RH LWHR HWHR For each of the four scenarios a weather table will be produced. We are going to go through generation of pseudo-data with you on the board in the lab, so it is very important that you attend. Now we get to use Prometheus. You will input the elevation and FBP Fuel data you created before. Although you learned how to create your own weather data, I will give you a series of weather datasets so everyone ends up with the same results.
