A General Procedure for Sampling and Analyzing Wildland Fire Spread

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

An algorithm is developed that converts three time measurements to the direction and rate of spread of a fire across any triangle. Procedures are also developed for analyzing the uniformity of fire spread, given four time observations. Flexible sampling techniques allow the procedures to be adapted to a wide variety of fire-related phenomena on prescribed fires or wildfires. Using the procedure, we stratified rate of spread data for a prescribed fire into two significantly different groups. Forest Sci. 30:51-64.
