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...

This guide provides direction for planning and managing smoke from prescribed fires to achieve air quality requirements through improved smoke management practices. The Guide applies to all prescribed fires, those started by managers or by nature...

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...

In Australia the long-term ecolgical consequences of forest practices which lead to nutrient depletion may be very serious. In the absence of fertilization, cumulative nutrient depletion associated with intensive management (involving clear-felling,...

Emissions from prescribed fire vary geographically. In the Northeast, for example, prescribed fires are rare. In other sections, e.g., the southern Coastal Plain, meteorological conditions, terrain, and light fuel loads minimize atmospheric...

Occupational safety and health concerns have been raised in a number of southern states by workers conducting prescribed burns on forest lands treated with herbicides. Modeling assessments coupled with laboratory experiments have shown that the risk of...
