For many years, people have used the FEPS 1.0 outputs as inputs to the PC versions of VSMOKE, VSMOKE-GIS, and PC HYSPLIT atmospheric dispersion models. Many prescribed burners have found these tools helpful to examine possible downwind smoke impacts when planning and implementing prescribed fires.
Recently, Bill Jackson completed a new version of the software interface (it is now 64 bit compatible) so that a person can modify Fuel & Fire Tools (FFT) input files, complete a new FFT analysis, and the FEPS output from FFT still serves as input to the three atmospheric dispersion models. The attached User’s Guide will provide you with a full description of how the new software interface, called SmokeTools, works.
If you are interested in trying SmokeTools then please email Bill at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will receive an invite from DropBox to download two zip files that need to be unzipped to your PC. Once unzipped, then you will be able to install the software (see Appendix A in the attached manual for all of the software that needs to be installed).
