Methods for transmitting weather data and uses of the data by foresters are becoming more automated. Recent work at Macon confirms the importance of atomospheric [atmospheric] stability as a determinant of forest fire behavior. Smoke management systems currently being developed and tested, have potential future applications in maintaining highway visibility.
