Dataset: ADFD : Daily Maximum Moorland Fire Danger Index


Bureau of Meteorology Australian Digital Forecast Database Grid. Forecasts are issued by the Bureau of Meteorology on a routine basis for each state and merged into one forecast grid for Australia for each forecast element. This forecast element is the Daily Maximum Moorland Fire Danger Index. This grid is only produced for Tasmania.

The Moorland Fire Danger Index (MFDI) was developed by the Tasmanian Parks and Wildlife Service for the management of button grass moorlands. MFDI values are significantly reduced by rainfall within the previous 48 hours.
