Importance of fuel treatment for limiting moderate-to-high intensity fire: findings from comparative fire modelling

Cary, Geoffrey J.; Davies, Ian; Bradstock, Ross A.; Keane, R.E.; Flannigan, Mike D.


Context Wildland fire intensity influences natural communities, soil properties, erosion, and sequestered carbon. Measuring effectiveness of fuel treatment for reducing area of higher intensity unplanned fire is argued to be more meaningful than determining effect on total unplanned area burned. Objectives To contrast the relative importance of fuel treatment effort, ignition management effort and weather for simulated total area burned and area burned by moderate-to-high intensity...[Show more]
