For many thousands of years south-eastern Australia has experienced wildfires. These days, in an average summer around six hundred wildfires occur in Victoria's parks and forests. Between twenty and thirty percent of these fires are caused by...

Atmospheric composition, local climate and sapling gas exchange were monitored to assess the short-term effects of smoke-haze from the 1997 Indonesian forest fires. Atmospheric concentrations of particulate matter, SO2, CO, CH4 and CO2, and relative...

Mass transformations were estimated in burns in the clearings of three colonist lots near Altamira, Pará, Brazil. In each lot, two groupings of six 60-m^2 plots were established in sites where the forest had been recently felled; plots were arranged as...

A simplified physical model for the steady-state propagation of an infinite fire front through a uniform forest fuel bed in still air is derived from a mechanistic approach that considers a forest fire as a compressible, reactive and radiative flow...

A computational procedure for predicting the buoyant plume above a line fire in a cross wind is reported. The present model takes into account the interaction between the plume and the surrounding flow by solving the two-dimensional equations for the...

Seasonal trends in carbon emissions from savanna fires in Western Province, Zambia, were investigated in the early dry season (early June to early August) 1996. The objective was to determine the effect of fuel moisture content on combustion factors...

A recently developed technique of using satellite UV radiance measurements to detect absorbing tropospheric aerosols is found to be effective over snow/ice surfaces. This method takes advantage of the wavelength dependent reduction in the backscattered...

This study reports on the use of the process-based ecosystem model CENTURY 4.0 to investigate the patterns of net primary productivity (NPP) along a transect across the boreal forests of central Canada and the influence of climate change, CO2...

Fire is the dominant stand-replacing agent in the Canadian boreal forest (including Jack pine, Pinus banksiana, and black spruce, Picea mariana), but few quantitative measurements are available on the micrometeorological effects of fire. Airborne flux...
