From the text...'The Southern Forest Fire Laboratory of the USDA Forest Service's Southeastern Forest Experiment Station at Macon, Georgia, is engaged in research and development work to manage smoke from prescribed fire. A part of this work is the development of techniques to predict smoke transport and dispersion. A knowledge of the geometries of smoke plume volumes is required. It is the purpose of this paper to present a smoke volume model which has given encouraging results with early data.'
