    Description

    The fire problem in the organic soil (pocosin) areas of eastern North Carolina centers a round the frequent and costly blowup wildfires occurring there and the use of fire as a management tool. Under certain combinations of fuel and weather, low intensity fires will suddenly and often unexpectedly multiply their rate of energy output many times . In almost all instances these fires have been virtually uncontrollable until the weather has moderated or the fire has run out of fuel. Efforts at control are often greatly hampered by inaccessibility and the poor soil trafficability in much of the area.
