    Description

    Fuels planning: science synthesis and integration; environmental consequences fact sheet 5: prescriptions and fire effects. Miller, Melanie. 2004. Res. Note RMRS-RN-23-5-WWW. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station. 2 p. While our understanding of the causes for variation in postfire effects is increasing, burn prescriptions may not always include parameters that control the long-term heat pulse from fire. This paper discusses (1) fuel consumption and fire effects, (2) prescription design considerations, and (3) planning a prescribed fire.
