This Report describes the construction of an index of the relative rate of spread of crowning forest fires during spring and early summer. It depends on the proposition that conifer crowns are more flammable during this period because the moisture...

The use of chemical fire retardants in forest ecosystems creates a number of potential problems in land management. The properties, application, and known side-effects of chemical retardants are therefore reviewed from the point of view of ecological...
From the Introduction:'The technique selected for measuring the pyrolysis energy involved the use of the Perkin-Elmer DSC-2 Differential Scanning Calorimeter and TS-1 Thermogravimetric Balane. The TGS-1 also used a Cahn Time Derivative Computer to...
The performance of the Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index (FWI) is analyzed with respect to wildfire behavior in Ontario for a 7-year period (1965-1971). Lightning fires and man-caused fires are analyzed separately and regional differences in fire...
From the Introduction:'The objective of EDST 1710, Firing and Line Holding Devices, is to improve safety and efficiency in prescribed burning and wildfire control through the development of equipment for firing and line holding. There has been a...
From the text:'The computer program FIREDAT was run and the cumulate percentage of ignition components used to determine the class boundaries. The only percents green used were10-30-50, corresponding to cured, transition and green in the old...
The Canadian Forest Fire Weather Index (FWI) was issued in 1970 after several years' work by a number of fire researchers in the Canadian Forestry Service. The best features of the former fire danger index were incorporated in the FWI, and a link...
From the Introduction: 'Forest fire control agencies in Canada keep records of fire occurrences. Generally, these records summarize the characteristics of individual forest fires and are often stored on a computer-oriented device, usually magnetic...
Air flow in the natural environment affects the distribution of organisms, mechnical stresses, heat losses by convection, and moisture distribution. Air flow was visualized by bubble tracers in a wind tunnel, and the flow patterns over solid barriers 5...
This report is a bibliography of publications on all aspects of forest fire produced during the period 1961 to 1974 at the Petawawa Forest Experiment Station. There are 52 items, listed chronologically in four categories. A short descriptive note...
The Wildfire Mitigation Awards (WMA) are the highest national honor one can receive for outstanding work and significant program impact in wildfire preparedness and mitigation. The three award categories are:
- National Wildfire Mitigation Award
- National Mitigation Hero Award
- Wildfire Mitigation Legacy Award
- Fuels management and fire behavior
- Changing fire environment
- Emissions and air quality
- Fire effects and post-fire recovery
- Relative impacts of prescribed fire versus wildfire
- Human dimensions of fire
The primary announcement FA-FOA0020-002 has one task statement:
- Performance of fuel breaks and fuel break systems
- Great Basin
- Pacific Islands
Text of the International Association of Wildland Fire (IAWF) statement:
Possible sectors of analysis include but are not limited to:
- fisheries (including ocean acidification),
- transportation (and trans-Arctic shipping),
- infrastructure, mineral,
- oil & gas resource development,
- mixed-subsistence economies, and
