From the summary:'Systems developed to sample and analyze gases from experimental fires have provided data which appears to be consistent with the general pattern of behavior of the fires and with other data collected. The capability of the system prior to Fire 7 60-12 was constrained primarily by the limited amount of continuous analysis equipment available, but this has been partially remedied by the later sequenced system.'
