LF produces fire behavior fuel model data representing average conditions. However, the average condition doesn't provide the temporal precision needed to model fire behavior with seasonal variability. LF produces two indexes to account for fuel's seasonal variability.

|Modeling Dynamic Fuels with an Index System (MoD-FIS)|
|Drought Based Fuel Dynamic system (LF_DBFD) - better represents drier conditions with fuel models in the Southeast.
Provisional MoD-FIS - captures the inter-annual variability in herbaceous growth and impact on available fuels in the Great Basin and Southwest.
