    Forest fires are devastating not only for the environment but for the people’s quality of life as well. Most crucial about forest fires is the early stage counter fighting. In order to become aware of a fire event as soon as possible sensor networks are involved. Wireless sensors technology is theAuthor: Ioannis A. Pikrammenos, Panagiota Pantelidi, Panagiotis Krypotos.

      Thermocouples were fixed 10 cm above the soil surface by attaching them with binder clips to the rebar of the passive flame height sensors described below. Fire temperatures were recorded every second. Flame heights were quantified with passive flame height sensors consisting of twisted cotton string that had been soaked with flame retardant Cited by: 8.

J Cited by: This article proposes a novel method for detecting forest fires, through the use of a new color index, called the Forest Fire Detection Index (FFDI), developed by the authors. The index is based on methods for vegetation classification and has been adapted to detect the tonalities of flames and smoke; the latter could be included adaptively into the Regions of Interest (RoIs) with the help of Cited by:

Treated strings were completely decomposed to a height 5 to 7 percent above the visually estimated average flame height.

The strings were evaluated in nine prescribed fires in Douglas-fir logging residues. Operational use of the flame-height sensor is discussed. Citation: Ryan, Kevin C.

We conducted a pilot study to determine the best material for measuring flame height in the oak-hickory forest litter fuels present in the Central Hardwood Region. Fire-retardant-soaked cotton string and four different compositions of lead/tin solder (63/37, 60/40, 50/50/, and 40/60) were compared.

We evaluated three replicates containing four strands of each material.

Intensity vs. Severity •Intensity = A measure of the rate of heat (energy) released by a fire. Fire intensity is directly proportional to the fuel condition, amount and rate of fuel consumed. Thus, fuels, weather, and topography are very important in determining the rate of heat released by a fire.

Forest fires represent a major driver of change at the ecosystem and landscape levels in the Mediterranean region. Environmental features and vegetation are key factors to estimate the ecological vulnerability to fire; defined as the degree to which an ecosystem is susceptible to, and unable to cope with, adverse effects of fire (provided a fire occurs).Cited by:
