    Description

    When completed in 1959, the Southern Forest Fire Laboratory was the world?s first devoted entirely to the study of forest fires, Since then the scientists at the Laboratory have: 1) performed basic and applied research on critical fire problems of national interest, 2) conducted special regional research on fire problems peculiar to the 13 Southern States, and 3) assisted other States east of the Mississippi River on fire problems requiring the Laboratory?s unique facilities. Some of the research topics included combustion and fire behavior, prescribed burning and fire effects, fire?control, weather and fire danger, and smoke management. This brief history highlights some of the important research findings and the scientists that made them. Fire research in the 1990?s will focus on ecological processes and understanding the natural environment.
