The Canadian Fire Effects Model (CanFIRE) is a compilation of Canadian fire behaviour models that are used to calculate first-order (immediate, physical) fire effects on stand characteristics, and to simulate the resulting second-order (later, ecological) fire effects on stand composition. CanFIRE is provided by Natural Resource Canada's Canadian Forest Service.
Fire danger and fire spread calculator provided by Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
The Canadian Wildland Fire Information System (CWFIS) is a computer-based fire management information system that monitors fire danger conditions across Canada. CWFIS is provided by Natural Resource Canada's Canadian Forest Service.
A laboratory devoted to wildland fire sciences and technologies in the Euro-Mediterranean region. This website includes an E-Libray that provides a list of registered bibliographical references.
Fire Behaviour Knowledge Base.
Public domain software for the wildland fire community.
The Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse.
Fire behavior and fire danger software from the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory.

Custom software development and IT services.
Coupled atmospheric-fire modelling that investigates the dynamics of wildfires through physical-based modelling. This website is provided by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Mesoscale and Microscale Meteorology (MMM).
Part of the USDA Forest Service's Threat Characterization and Management Program at the Pacific Northwest Research Station. An applied research team focuses on understanding how the atmosphere interacts with wildland fire.
A modular modeling framework that links a variety of independent models of fire information, fuel loading, consumption, emissions, and smoke dispersion.
Fire Dynamics Simulator (FDS) is a computational fluid dynamics model of fire-driven fluid flow, with an emphasis on smoke and heat transport from fires. Smokeview (SMV) is a visualization program used to display FDS outputs. This website is provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
The North American Ensemble Forecast System (NAEFS) is a weather modeling system run jointly by the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) and the U.S. National Weather Service (NWS) to provide numerical weather prediction products to both countries for a forecast period that runs out to 2 weeks in the future.
