Description: Research in fire danger measurement was commenced in 1922 at the Northern Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station of the U. S. Forest Service, with headquarters at Missoula, Mont. Since then investigations have been made concerning ( 1) what to measure, (2) how to measure, and ( 3) field use of these measurements. In all cases the laboratory or restricted field experiments have been followed by several years of extensive application and test on the 10 fire forests of northern Idaho and western Montana, comprising an area of some 17,000,000 acres.
