31-page presentation about the wildland fire. It also tackles the factors that affects fire behavior. Requires Powerpoint viewer.
Picture of the Wildland Fire Triangle: Fuel, Topography and Weather.
An article about the components of wildfire. It is important to understand what controls fire behavior and how to predict it. This knowledge will help predict fire effects, conduct prescribed burns, predict wildfire risk, and control wildfires. Fire behavior is controlled by three interacting components: fuels, weather, and topography.
An article about the wildland fire triangle. Wildland fires are affected by a Wildland Fire Triangle that consists of weather, topography, and fuel.
15-page PDf document about the fire behavior indicators.
An article on wildfire modeling. It is concerned with numerical simulation of wildland fires in order to understand and predict fire behavior. Wildfire modeling can ultimately aid wildland fire suppression, namely increase safety of firefighters and the public, reduce risk, and minimize damage. Wildfire modeling can also aid in protecting ecosystems, watersheds, and air quality.
An article about the interacting components of fire behavior.
4-page PDF document that discusses about fire ecology. It include fire behavior.
An article on the variables that are important determinants of fire behavior.
10-page PDF document about the fire behavior influences: topography, fuel and weather.
