Description: Fuel temperature is and has always been difficult to measure. To understand better the problem of fire and fire weather behavior, it is important to measure this variable. We have developed for field use a new fuel temperature counter which can be used to obtain such measurements quickly and easily. This electronic recording instrument is easy to construct and operate, is highly portable, has low power requirements, and will operate up to 2 weeks without attendance. It consists of three fuel temperature sensors, a pulse generator, a timer, and an accumulating counter (figs. l and 2).
