Description

As people expand settlement into wilder areas, the impact of wildfires, both naturally occurring and human-set, becomes more destructive. This timely book examines what scientists know about wildfires, whether we can predict them, and how we learn from each event. By studying the destruction they cause, scientists and engineers continue to come up with new and improved technologies to predict and control wildfires and better protect cities, buildings, and people. Case studies and brief bios of key scientists and organizations highlight the information.
