Andrew has been working on the development of fire spread simulation software, was co-author of a book on grass fire behavior and management, and conducted field experiments in Australian forests. His PhD. research focuses on the role of the competitive thermokinetics of cellulose thermal decomposition and combustion in patterns of bushfire spread.

    She has published a substantial number of research articles, book chapters and technical reports that have significantly contributed to the advances of wildland fire science across a broad range of fuel types (forest, grass, shrubland) and topic areas including fire propagation, fuel consumption, fuel moisture dynamics and fire danger. FOR Introduction to Wildland Fire Science. This course explores the physical, chemical, biological and ecological processes associated with wildland fire, with particular emphasis on fire behavior, fuels, weather, climate and the associated effects on ecology, management, fire suppression, prescribed fire, and smoke emissions and exposure.

Wildland Fire and Fuels Research and Development Strategic Plan: Meeting the Needs of the Present, Anticipating the Needs of the Future Three national priority program elements for core fire science research are described in the following.

iv /Research and Development Wildland Fire and Fuels Accomplishments and Outcomes Executive Summary This report focuses on wildland fire management and response outcomes—in the context of fire and fuels research and development (R&D) at the Forest Service, an agency of the U.S.

Department of Agriculture (USDA)—that haveAuthor: Matthew Rollins, Carlos Rodriguez-Franco, Tara Haan, Susan Conard. The RDA Program will sponsor and guide the development and application of wildland scientific knowledge.

Develop decision support tools. Provide science application services to the interagency wildland fire community. Describing Wildland Fuels Considerable effort is expended to determine fuel loadings and to map those loadings across the landscape, yet there is little or no work being done to determine how to incorporate those measurements into the next generation of fire behavior models, such as physics-based models.

Live Fuels and Fire Behavior Research Wildland fires are a common global ecosystem disturbance and they spread through a combination of living and dead vegetation. Historically, research on fuel ignition and fire behavior characteristics has focused on dead fuels that are easily manipulated in the field and laboratory.

Fire environment differences are discussed as necessary; instructor should stress local conditions. Objectives.

Identify and describe the characteristics of fuels, weather, and topography that influence wildland fire behavior. Describe the interaction of fuels, weather, and topography on wildland fire behavior, fireline tactics, and safety. Wildland fire and fuels research and development: meeting the needs of the present, anticipating the needs of the future: a strategy overview.

A wildfire, wildland fire or rural fire is an uncontrolled fire in an area of combustible vegetation occurring in rural areas. Depending on the type of vegetation present, a wildfire can also be classified more specifically as a brush fire, bushfire (in Australia), desert fire, forest fire, grass fire, hill fire, peat fire, vegetation fire, or veld fire.

fuels and risks from fire, wildland fire managers need to use all available strategies. Using wildland fire may be the least expensive alternative, and it may be the best option for restoring the natural role of fire in wildlands.

However, to use fire effectively, managers need to be able to quantify the benefits and risks of wildland fire. Miller, Carol and Landres, Peter.

36 p. Abstract We report the results of a questionnaire and workshop that sought to gain a better and deeper understanding of. Fire-prone landscapes are experiencing rapid and potentially persistent changes as the result of complex and potentially novel interactions of anthropogenic climate changes, shifting fire regimes, exotic plant, insect, and pathogen invasions, and industrial, agricultural, and urban development.

Are these landscapes fully departed from historical. Written by recognized authorities on fire management, it presents the fundamental physics and chemistry of fire, fire behavior, wildland fuels, the interaction of fires and weather, the ecological effects of fires, the structure of fire management programs, planning efforts, suppression strategies, prescribed fires, and global fire by: A new era in wildland fuel sciences is now evolving in such a way that fire scientists and managers need a comprehensive understanding of fuels ecology and science to fully understand fire effects and behavior on diverse ecosystem and landscape characteristics.

p Abstract. The interaction between smoke and air pollution creates a public health challenge. Fuels treatments proposed for National Forests are intended to reduce fuel accumulations and Cited by: Wildland Fire Research: Tools and Technology Development New scientific tools are needed to better quantify and predict the impact of smoke from wildland fires on public health.

EPA research is supporting the development of new air quality monitors to measure wildfire emissions; advancing modeling capabilities to understand the impact of. Extreme fire events in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) are a growing challenge.

Threats to life, property, infrastructure and community assets, coupled with the direct and indirect costs of extreme fire events make coordinated prevention, planning and response imperative.This causes preheating of the fuels, faster fire spread, and greater fire intensities.
