Publication Year: 
2013
Author: Smith, Diane M.; Lee, Kristine M.

This data publication contains scanned photos from pivotal experiments conducted by Richard Rothermel and Hal Anderson at the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory from the early 1960s through the mid-1980s. The scans document early research that forms the foundation of fire spread and fire danger models used in the field to this day. It also contains a data catalog and finding aid for the hard copy data and files available for these experiments. The current generation of web-based fire decision support systems is based on this early Rothermel and Anderson research.
