Paper Abstract

Experimental measurements of winds, vorticity and convergence in large Project Flambeau fires were made in conjunction. with propagation measurements of radar, IR and visible electromagnetic radiation. Visibility was reduced to tens of feet, IR attenuation. coefficient were on the order of 1 km-1, while radar was fore-shortened by one percent with from 3 to 9 minutes of beam bending.
