Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)
Description: Presents an analytical procedure that uses a FORTRAN 77 program to estimate fire direction and rate of spread. The program also calculates the variability of these parameters, both for subsections of the fire and for the fires as a whole. An option in the program allows users with a CALCOMP plotter to obtain a map of the fire with spread vectors.
Keywords: FORTRAN program, CALCOMP plotter, vector, prescribed burn, wildland fire
