  • Forest Fires - Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Forest Fires

    Forest Fires are very complex phenomena which, under the right physical conditions, can rapidly devastate large areas, as demonstrated by recent events. There is also widespread awareness that the risk may increase as a result of climate changes.Different approaches are required for controlling fires in rural areas as opposed to urban ...

  • The Art and Science of Lightning Protection

    A lightning strike to an unprotected object or system can be disastrous - in the United States lightning is responsible for over 30% of all electric power failures, causes billions of dollars worth of property damage, and an average of 85 fatalities a year. This accessible text describes all aspects of lightning protection and includes many ...

  • Fire Protection: Systems and Response

    The modern definition of firefighter no longer means “putting the wet stuff on the red stuff.” Emergency responders answer incidents ranging from fire alarm activations to elevator rescues and medical emergencies more often than full-blown fires. Consequently, responders increasingly interface with a wide array of building systems. Underscoring ...

  • Thermal Measurements: The Foundation of Fire Standards

    Eleven peer-reviewed papers address the significant challenges associated with performing thermal measurements as part of fire standards development, testing and analysis. The testing environment and the results of fire standards tests are almost always based on one or more thermal measurements. Measurements of importance include temperature, heat ...

  • Protecting the Ozone Layer Vol 3, Fire Extinguishing Substances

    Bromine is present in the halons controlled by the Montreal Protocol. The presence of bromine in the halon molecule enhances fire fighting effectiveness. Unfortunately, bromine radicals are also strong ozone-depleting agents. For the past 30 years, halons have been widely used in fire fighting equipment, and have been released into the ...

  • Tropical Rainforest Responses to Climatic Change

    The goal of this book is to provide a current overview of the impacts of climate change on tropical forests, to investigate past, present, and future climatic influences on the ecosystems with the highest biodiversity on the planet. 'Tropical Rainforest Responses to Climatic Change' will be the first book to examine how tropical rain forest ...

  • Atmospheric Aerosol Properties

    This book provides the first comprehensive analysis of how aerosols form in the atmosphere through in situ processes as well as via transport from the surface (dust storms, seas spray, biogenic emissions, forest fires etc.). Such an analysis has been followed by the consideration of both observation data (various field observational experiments) ...

  • Tropical Fire Ecology

    Fire Ecology of Tropical Ecosystems gives an extensive explanation of historic and current fire situations in the tropics, describing the fire ecology of tropical ecosystems from around the globe. Eighteen groups of leading researchers explain the many different aspects and roles of fire in tropical ecosystems. Regional chapters address a set of ...
