Effects of Fine Fuel Moisture and Loading on Small Scale Fire Behavior in Mixed-Oak Forests of Southern Ohio
Pages: 100-114
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0201100

Multiple factors interact to influence fire behavior. While the interactions of fuel moisture and fuel loading in western coniferous communities are well understood, few studies have examined fire behavior in eastern deciduous forests. In order to accurately predict fire behavior in mixed oak forests, studies need to examine fire behavior in eastern deciduous forests. We conducted a fine-scale manipulative experiment to determine the specific effects that fine fuel moisture andload have on fire behavior in Ohio mixed-oak forests.  [Read More]
