The prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) ignited in 2012 at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, allowed researchers to conduct simultaneous experiments on fuels, meteorology, fire behavior, heat balance, smoke, and fire effects. The experiment, involving 90 scientists and technicians, will provide a high quality, integrated fire data set for testing, evaluation, and validating next-generation fire models. The project targeted critical data needs outlined by members of the fire modeling community. All data collected and accompanying metadata are being uploaded into the U.S. Forest Service Research and Development archival repository and will be available to scientists around the globe by September 30, 2014. The Discovery Channel Canada gathered footage and broadcast a 6-minute segment. The International Journal of Wildfire has agreed to sponsor a special issue, scheduled for 2014, with 10 articles dedicated to the RxCADRE project.
