Fire Behavior Portal
The fire behavior topic page contains resources and activities related to the study and management of the direction, spread and intensity of wildland fire.
Wildland Fire Library (firelibrary.org)
The Wildland Fire Library (firelibrary.org) is a collection of long-term assessments, fire progressions, fire behavior reports, and other documents and resources to support fire modeling and assessment of long-duration fires. Each file is tied to some event with a location, a start date, and background information. This site is operated by Rick Stratton and Jim Edmonds of the USFS National Office.

It is well understood that the incidence and behavior of forest fire depends mainly on short-term weather influences of no more than several days duration. And yet, all through the history of fire danger rating in the United States and Canada, runs a...
Powerpoint presentation given at the Joint Session of 19th Annual Interior West Fire Council Conference & 6th American Meteorological Society Symposium on Fire and Forest Meteorology, Oct. 25-27, 2005, Canmore, AB.
The following list of research topics was generated by agencies within AWFCG during 2005. The topics were ranked originally by the AWFCG Fire Research and Development Committee (FRDAC) and finally by the AWFCG members. Ranking was as follows: 3=...
During the 1974 fire season the Alberta Forest Service, Canadian Forestry Service, and three other federal agencies successfully completed a short term program of experimental burning in the jack pine forests of northeastern Alberta. A detailed account...
I inventoried the forests of the Anchorage wildland-urban interface and created a hierarchical classification of twenty forest types differentiated according to tree species, tree and basal area densities and degree of spruce bark beetle mortality. The...
Under the nuclear winter scenario, large wildland fires are expected to contribute to a general smoke plume and are considered potential analogues for the behavior of gigantic palls. As a means of testing the reasonableness of current estimates of a...
Human-induced fires are a major disturbance in Baikiaea plurijuga woodland savannas that are economically important for timber production. Most fires occur during the late dry season, when they may severely damage woody plants. Prescribed burning...
Sprouting vigour is determined by the plant amount of reserves and intrinsic growth rate of plants.While the first factor has been well studied, the second is far less understood. Although a higher growth rate would imply a higher sprouting vigour,...
Our understanding of the frequency of brood amalgamation in the Northern Bobwhite (Colinus virginianus) is largely anecdotal. Information on it is important in understanding survival and reproduction. We captured entire bobwhite broods at 3-4 and 10-12...
