Current Research. My current research is focused on (1) developing new predictive tools for fire-weather, fire behavior, and air quality in support of the Forest Service's Fire and Fuels R&D Strategy, (2) examining fire-fuel-atmosphere interactions, turbulence regimes, and local dispersion of smoke during wildland fire events, and (3) examining the effects of climate .

    Forestry - Forestry - Fire prevention and control: A forest fire is unenclosed and freely spreading combustion that consumes the natural fuels of a forest—i.e., duff, grass, weeds, brush, and trees. Forest fires occur in three principal forms, the distinctions depending essentially on their mode of spread and their position in relation to the ground surface. The Volunteer Fire Assistance Grant Program utilizes federal funds from the U.S. Department of Agriculture – Forest Service as part of a national allotment for rural fire protection under the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act of , as amended by the Forest Stewardship Act of The funds are intended to assist State Foresters.

    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, desert fire, forest fire, grass fire, hill fire, peat fire, vegetation fire, or veld fire. Many organizations consider wildfire to mean an.

APPLICATION OF METEOROLOGY IN FOREST FIRE PROTECTION With the goal of contributing to the ORGANIZED FOREST FIRE PROTECTION, Republic Hydrometeorological Service of Serbia (RHMS) has started in the spring of to calculate the assessed forest fire risk on the territory of the Republic of Serbia.

[no description entered] Title The application of meteorology to forest fire protection (reprint of publication). The California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (CAL FIRE) is California's fire department and resource management agency. The organization is comprised of nearly 8, permanent and seasonal employees.

The mission of the Department is to serve and safeguard the people and protect the property and resources of California. The Forest Service has been managing wildland fire on National Forests and Grasslands for more than years.

But the Forest Service doesn’t – and can’t – do it alone. Instead, the agency works closely with other federal, tribal, state, and local partners. This issue of the International Journal of Wildland Fire highlights significant work presented at the Sixth Symposium on Fire and Forest Meteorology, held in Canmore, Canada, during October The biennial Fire and Forest Meteorology series provides a forum for meteorologists and wildland fire experts from around the world.

This particular Symposium was held jointly with. Forest Fire Finder. This optical system has totally different techniques and is a system based on intelligent analysis of the atmosphere instead of detecting the smoke or fire glow. Forest Fire Finder tracks the way the atmosphere absorbs the sun light, which depends on the chemical composition in the atmosphere.

The occurrence of forest fires is frequent phenomenon in Greece, especially during the warmest period of the year, the summer.

Timely and reliable estimation of the meteorological risk for their onset is of crucial importance for their prevention. Thus, the purpose of our current work was firstly the estimation of the values of a suitable relevant index for Greece, meteorological forest fire. Forest Fire and Degradation Assessment succession.

However uncontrolled and misuse of fire can cause tremendous adverse impacts on the environment and the human society.

Forest Fire Protection Assessment (FFPA) is a fee that is paid by private forest landowners and exempt entities (counties, cities, non-profits, and state landowners) to help pay for the cost of preparing to fight wildfires as opposed to actually fighting the fire (the costs that are referred to as "suppression costs").

Following the theoretical model proposed in previous papers in which four types of days and their associated fire risk (daily fire risk, DFR) were defined for each size of fire, the authors conclude that the meteorological conditions that favor the generation of fires must be similar to those that are favorable to their development.
