Title: The RxCADRE study: A new approach to interdisciplinary fire research

Author: Peterson, David L.; Hardy, Colin C.;

Date: 2016

Source: International Journal of Wildland Fire. 25: i.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)


Much like other scientific endeavours, most fire research is conducted either within individual disciplines - fuels, physics, chemistry, ecology, modelling, and so forth - or, at best, across only two or three disciplines. This is primarily because fire scientists have particular areas of expertise and most collaborations are between scientists within that expertise. Although this approach often leads to significant discoveries, the lack of co-located, multi-scale measurements of pre-fire fuels, active fire processes and post-fire effects hinders our ability to tackle fundamental questions in fire science.

Keywords: fire research, fuels, physics, chemistry, ecology, modelling
