Abstract

Measurements of meteorological conditions prevailing during the rapid spread of forest fires are greatly needed so that when their recurrence seems probable, fire-weather forecasters may issue warnings of the danger. Such determinations also can be used by forest protective agencies which operate meteorological stations to guide their own action in the distribution of men and the hiring of fire fighters whenever their instruments reveal the early probability or actual existence of these dangerous conditions.
