Description

From the text (pg 8) ... 'The present study had three main objectives in view: (a) to study the relation between forest fire hazard and weather conditions; (b) to determine whether current conditions of hazard can be estimated by means of simple meteorological instrumentation; and (c) to show in a general way the application of such an index of hazard and weather forecast to specific problems of fire control.'
