RxCADRE 2012: In-situ fire behavior measurements

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains fire behavior package (FBP) data; primarily flame temperature, horizontal and vertical mass flow, fire intensity, as well as ocular rates of spread (ROS), wind speed and direction data from the Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) project conducted in November, 2012.

Near-surface wind measurements

Projects Posted on: March 27, 2015
Wind predictions in complex terrain are important for a number of applications including wildland fire behavior, transport and dispersion of pollutants, and wind energy applications. Fine-scale changes in topography and vegetation substantially alter the flow field. Thus, accurate modeling for these applications in complex topography requires near-surface flow field predictions at a high spatial resolution.
