Wildland fire hazard and risk : Problems , definitions , and context

  title={Wildland fire hazard and risk : Problems , definitions , and context},
  author={Colin C. Hardy},
The risks, hazards, and relative severity of wildland fires are presented here within the ecological context of historical natural fire regimes, time, space, and process. As the public dialogue on the role and impacts of wildland fire increases, it is imperative for all partners to converge on clear and concise terminology that defines risk, hazard, and the characteristic (or uncharacteristic) nature of wildland fire. These terms must be defined in the context of scale—both spatial and temporal… CONTINUE READING
