Measurement of pyrolysis products from mixed fuel beds during fires in a wind tunnel

Publications Posted on: December 14, 2018
Pyrolysis of intact wildland fuels in the southern United States is being measured at bench, wind tunnel, and field scales as part of a larger research project to measure and model pyrolysis of wildland fuels to improve models used to predict prescribed fire behavior. Traditional pyrolysis experiments typically use dried, ground samples in either an inert or oxidizing environment subject to uniform heating and heat transfer.

Raster surfaces created from the cost-effective mapping of longleaf extent and condition using NAIP imagery and FIA data project

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains twenty-four GeoTIFF files for four significant geographic areas (SGAs) in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. The extent of the SGAs are defined within the America’s Longleaf Range-wide Conservation Plan for Longleaf (2009).

Final Report for SERDP Project RC-1649: Advanced Chemical Measurements of Smoke from DoD-prescribed Burns

Publications Posted on: May 06, 2014
Project RC-1649, "Advanced Chemical Measurement of Smoke from DoD-prescribed Burns" was undertaken to use advanced instrumental techniques to study in detail the particulate and vapor-phase chemical composition of the smoke that results from prescribed fires used as a land management tool on DoD bases, particularly bases in the southeastern U.S.

Field measurements of trace gases emitted by prescribed fires in southeastern US pine forests using an open-path FTIR system

Publications Posted on: January 08, 2014
We report trace-gas emission factors from three pine-understory prescribed fires in South Carolina, US measured during the fall of 2011. The fires were more intense than many prescribed burns because the fuels included mature pine stands not subjected to prescribed fire in decades that were lit following an extended drought.
