Special Issue "Fire and the Atmosphere"
A special issue of Atmosphere (ISSN 2073-4433). This special issue belongs to the section "Biosphere/Hydrosphere/Land–Atmosphere Interactions".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 April 2018).
Fire is an integral component of many ecosystems. However, fire also poses a growing threat to human lives and property. The role of fire management is to maintain the ecological benefits of fire while minimizing the adverse impacts of fire on society. The atmosphere plays a critical role in fire management as it is a key driver of fire acting through an array of coupled processes spanning a wide range of space and time scales. The focus of this Special Issue is to explore the atmosphere’s role in a range of fire related topics including fire spread, fuels, climate change, fire behavior, smoke, fire weather and fire climate. Manuscripts based on field studies and/or modeling from around the world are welcome. The goal for the issue is to extend fire and forest meteorology science, as well as offer applied concepts for fire management practitioners.
