Comparing Techniques for Estimating Flame Temperature of Prescribed Fires
Pages: 75-84
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0101075

A variety of techniques that estimate temperature and/or heat output during fires are available. We assessed the predictive ability of metal and tile pyrometers, calorimeters of different sizes, and fuel consumption to time-temperature metrics derived from thick and thin thermocouples at 140 points distributed over 9 management-scale burns in a longleaf pine forest in the southeastern US.  [Read More]

Modeling spatial patterns of fuels and fire behavior in a longleaf pine forest in the southeastern USA
Pages: 31-52
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0201031

Characterizing spatial patterns of fire behavior is an important and rarely considered means of understanding patterns of vegetation recovery following a fire event. Using geostatistics, we characterized spatial patterns of pre-burn fuel loads, fire temperature and duration during prescribed burns, and post-burn fuel loads in four longleaf pine stands in the southeastern USA.  [Read More]
