The frequency and weight distributions of branch litter under lodgepole pine stands and the relation between weight of fuel and surface area were investigated using 1/10,000-acre circular plots. A graph is presented from which total surface area in the...
Variations of fuel moisture and related parameters attributable to degree of slope were studied by establishing fire weather stations on six land surfaces of the same elevation and aspect but varying from 0 to 62 per cent in steepness. Mean maximum...
A study of the effects of exposure (aspect and slope angle) and natural shade on the moisture content of Douglas fir logging slash indicates that, throughout most of the fire season, such effects are not great enough to be of practical significance in...
From the text... 'An ideal forest fire detection system would detect fires the instant they start, day or night, under any condition of visibility. Additionally, it could distinguish potentially dangerous fires from those that would not concern...
An 80-foot-square plot in a red pine plantation was burned at extreme fire danger as part of a study of fire behavior and effect. When the wind reversed its direction, the original slow-moving back-fire changed within a few minutes to a fast-spreading...
In the open, the Xerometer readings bore almost no relation to the fuel moisture content, probably because the element is too well sheltered from the sun. Since it appears to be but marginally better than relative humidity as a measure of moisture...
Mass fires are being investigated through a series of large-scale test fires. Preliminary results indicate: (a) air flow patterns that create eddies can result in fire vortices when fires is present; (b) the lower part of the convection column consists...

Thermostability of plant cells is due to the resistance of their proteins to denaturation, resistance to injurious metabolic changes, reparatory capacity, and capacity to harden. Hardiness includes the stability of several functions and increases the...
