Description

A series of graphs, tables and maps are presented that form the basis of a revised fire control plan at the Petawawa Forest Experiment Station. Called aids to fire control planning, they are classified into those describing: (a) the pattern of fire weather, (b) the trends in fire occurrence, (c) the history of fire size and area burned, and (d) features of the protected area.
