The DMC values shown on the map are numerical ratings of the average moisture content of a loosely compacted surface organic layers (duff). The code indicates fuel consumption of surface organic layer with low bulk density and medium-sized woody material.
Please refer to the scale in the table below for interpretation of the DMC maps:
|Low||Top layers of organic soil are wet.|
|Medium||Top layers of organic soil are moist.|
|High||Top layers of organic soil becoming dry.|
|Extreme||Top layers of organic soil are dry.|
