Edinburgh Researchers Featured in USDA Forest Service Video Spotlight

Researchers from the Fire Group, involved in a project on wildland fire behavior in the context of hazardous fuel reduction treatments, have recently been featured in a video put together by the USDA Forest Service. The video highlights several aspects of the experimental fire which was carried out in New Jersey, USA earlier this year. Particular focus is put on efforts to better understand and characterize the generation of firebrands in a wildland fire. This aspect of the project is of significant interest to Edinburgh researchers, and associated work aimed at understanding the ignition of structures due to firebrand accumulation is being carried out in the Rushbrook Fire Laboratory, under the guidance of Prof. Albert Simeoni, with the support of the American Wood Council.


Our experiment in NJ featured today in the Wildfire Today blog.
