To this end, we have developed a wildland fire spotting parameterization for the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model coupled to a fire behavior model based on the Coupled Atmosphere-Wildland Fire Environment. The coupled model, known as WRF-Fire, is utilized as an operational tool for the Colorado Fire Prediction System. We have adapted the particle transport physics from the Hybrid Single Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory (HYSPLIT) model to aid in the development of a new module within the WRF physics package. Resolved fire-atmosphere interactions are allowed to influence particle transport in the new parameterization, and individual firebrand properties (namely temperature and mass/diameter) are calculated and tracked. We conduct numerical simulations of idealized and real-world atmospheric conditions to test the utility of incorporating a wildland fire spotting parameterization into an operational model, as well as to quantify the sensitivity of the new parameterization to changes in environmental conditions and initial firebrand properties.
