DescriptionA system for predicting and modifying smoke concentrations from prescription fires is introduced. While limited to particulate matter and the more typical southern fuels, the system is for both simple and complex applications. Forestrysmoke constituents, variables affecting smoke production and dispersion, and new methods for estimating available fuel are presented.
