Adam Kochanski, Mary Ann Jenkins, Ruiyu Sun, Steven Krueger, Sepideh Abedi and Joseph Charney The importance of low-level environmental vertical wind shear to wildfire propagation: Proof of concept Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres 118

Version of Record online: 5 AUG 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrd.50436

Key Points

  • Above-surface wind affects wildfire propagation, behavior, prediction
  • Vertical-wind-shear/fire-interaction can be cause of erratic wildfire behavior
  • A probability forecast for fire behavior is necessary
