From the text:'In November 1958 Fuel-Breaks workers began studies of the moisture content of green chaparral fuel. Since then study plots have been established and described, and instruments obtained and installed. In March of 1959 actual data collection began. This report tells what has been done to set this project up so as to get the needed information on green fuel moisture.'
