OF THESIS MODELING WIND IN COMPLEX TERRAIN FOR USE IN FIRE SPREAD PREDICTION Currently, no methods of predicting microscale, terrain influenced winds are available to fire managers. This study evaluated three methods of providing surface wind information to fire growth models. One was simply a uniform wind speed and direction, a method that has been traditionally used, and the other two types were based on numerical models used in the pollutant dispersion and wind power generation fields. The… CONTINUE READING
