Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System

This project provides a group of new functions to calculate the outputs of the two main components of the Canadian Forest Fire Danger Rating System (CFFDRS) at various time scales: the Fire Weather Index (FWI) System and the Fire Behaviour Prediction (FBP) System. Some functions have two versions, table and raster based.
