Prescribed Burn 2-57 was the second of four prescribed burns studied in 1957. In this burn we were particularly interested in studying air flow on the lee side of a ridge oriented approximately at right angles to the prevailing wind. Experience has...

This report outlines the development (section 2) and testing (section 3) of a simple mathematical dispersion model, — based on Gaussin plume models for air polution, — for predicting smoke concentration and visibility reduction downwind from prescribed...

We have used the high optical absorptivity of urban and source particulates to trace their ‘graphitic” component. The optical absorptivity and the particu late carbon loading show a strong correlation. Analyses of the data indicate that primary soot...

A devestating conflagration occurred in the scenic hills above the cities of Oakland and Berkeley, California, on October 20, 1991. burning embers carried by high winds from the perimeter of a small but growing duff fire ignited overgrown vegetation...

A field investigation was initiated in the summer 1978 to quantify the influence of meteorological factors, ignition method, and fuel conditions on the behaviour of smoke plumes from open field burning. Measurements of air quality and meteorological...

From the text...'The purpose of this document is to provide technical information on prescribed burning. It does so in two ways. One, it provides background information useful in determining reasonably available control measures (RACM) and best...

To demonstrate the usefulness of active remote-sensing systems in observing forest fire behavior, we studied two fires, one using a 3.2-cm-wavelength Doppler radar, and one more extensively, using Doppler lidar. both instrumentS observed the kinematics...

Man began an intensive program to keep fire out of the woods about 70 years ago. Periodic ground fires once common in western pine forests were reduced, and a stand type that had been open, thrifty, and fairly resistant to wildfires lost those...
