Title: Comparison of 1949 summer forest fuel moisture in Oregon and Washington with other years.

Author: Cramer, Owen P.;

Date: 1949

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes, p. 1-3

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: There is much speculation about the competitive severity of the 1949 fire season. Forest fire protection agencies and sponsors of fire prevention campaigns wonder if the large or small acreage burned during the season is a valid measure of the success or failure of their efforts, or whether the burning conditions as influenced by weather were wholly responsible for any apparent change in the fire record from previous years. Fortunately, fuel moisture content measurements are a useful indicator of burning conditions.
