Systems for evaluating and predicting the effects of weather and climate on wildland fires: (revised with additional material on the use of remote-sensing tehniques in forest-fire management)
First published in 1978 in cooperation with UNEP, this revised edition contains a discussion of the general principles of fire-danger and fire-weather forecasting and presents proposals for the development of a universal fire-danger-rating system. It also covers: the establishment of fire-weather observing stations; the application of lightning-locating systems to forest-fire detection; and the use of remote-sensing techniques to wildland fire management.
