Evolving wildfire management policies are aimed at more comprehensive treatments of current wildland fire management problems. Key policies are identified that affect wildfire and fuels management. Policies are discussed in the context of institutional...

The effect that the wind's vertical variation has on fire plume behaviour is investigated. A parabolized set of governing equations are discretized using finite differences to arrive at the numerical model. Lagrangian particles are used to visualize...

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...

The trace gas emissions from six biomass fires, including three grass fires, were measured using a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer coupled to an open-path, multipass cell (OP-FTIR). The quantified emissions consisted of carbon dioxide,...

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...

Biomass burning is an important source of many trace gases in the global troposphere. We have constructed an airborne trace gas measurement system consisting of a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR) coupled to a flow-through multipass cell (...
