Fire Danger Rating for East Kalimantan, Indonesia


Purpose of Fire Danger Rating (FDR)

The Integrated Forest Fire Management (IFFM) project in Indonesia is supported by the German Agency for Technical Cooperation (gtz) and the Global Fire Monitoring Center (GFMC). IFFM has been working with a Fire Danger Rating (FDR) system in East Kalimantan since 1995. The FDR is based on the Keetch-Byram Drought Index (KBDI) and is part of the Fire Information System (FIS) which manages spatial fire related data and information in an integrated manner.

The actual FDR readings are updated regularly (daily during increasing drought, less regular during long-lasting wet periods) and is accessible through the IFFM website.

To access the daily drying index click on "Fire Information System" and then "FDR Graphic".
The FDR is described in detail under "About FDR".
