Dioxin TRI Data - Cl Sector links contact us Forest Fires: A Major Source of Dioxins Introduction New research suggests that forest fires are a major and natural source of dioxins i . In fact, in 2002, forest fires probably emitted nearly as much dioxin to the environment as did all other Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-quantified sources combined . Dioxin emissions from industrial and commercial sources have declined steadily over the past several decades. As emissions from these sources are further curtailed through regulation and technology, forest fires should continue to be viewed as a major source of dioxins to the environment. A recently published study by Gullett and Touati (2003) demonstrates that dioxin emissions from forest fires originate predominantly from biomass ii combustion, and not simply from the vaporization of dioxin compounds bound to vegetation. Additionally, the researchers found that the

Ned Eddins Opposition to forest floor clean up, any type of clear cuts, and the let burn policies of the Sierra Club and other radical environmentalist groups are destroying our National Forests. Environmentalist and bureaucratic policies have rendered federal agencies ineffective in managing our wildland (all land under federal agencies). National forests in the West are in deplorable condition , and the advocacy of letting natural fires burn, or in some cases to correct decades of fire-fuel buildup with prescribed burns, is destroying our forestlands. Examples of the catastrophic damage done to our National Parks and National Forests from advocating these policies are the Yellowstone National Park forest fires of 1988, the Mesa Verde forest fire of 2000, both of which were caused by lightning, and the prescribed burn that resulted in the Cerro Grande forest fire near Los Alamos, New Mexico in 2000. And now, there is the Colorado Hayman Fire and the Oregon Biscuit Fire of 2002 followed by the California Forest Fires of 2003 and 2004. As long as some environmental and conservation groups fight every change in forest management policy or cleanup efforts this pattern will continue...as an example

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search "Crown Fire" redirects here. For the 2010 wildfire in Southern California, see 2010 California wildfires For other uses, see Wildfire (disambiguation) A wildfire in California, USA on 5 September 2008 A wildfire is any uncontrolled fire in combustible vegetation that occurs in the countryside or a wilderness area. Other names such as brush fire bushfire forest fire grass fire hill fire peat fire vegetation fire veldfire and wildland fire may be used to describe the same phenomenon depending on the type of vegetation being burned. A wildfire differs from other fires by its extensive size, the speed at which it can spread out from its original source, its potential to change direction unexpectedly, and its ability to jump gaps such as roads, rivers and fire breaks Wildfires are characterized in terms of the cause of ignition, their physical properties such as speed of propagation , the combustible material present, and the effect of weather on the fire. Wildfires occur on every continent except Antarctica. Fossil records and human history contain accounts of wildfires, as wildfires can occur in periodic intervals.

Woods on fire
POSTED JULY 1996. To an increasing number of homeowners, wildfires are a threat to life and limb. But to an increasing number of scientists and land managers, they're a part of nature that can be postponed but not denied. This edition of The Why Files examines the role of fire in natural systems, and the role of science in understanding wildfires. They fought the fires at Yellowstone National Park in 1988, but it didn't do much good. What happened next (Here's a logical starting place.) What is the status of computer models of forest fires Here's a handy-dandy, hands-off technique for spotting blazes Many ecologists wild fires . Why? Costa Rican ecologists working on one of the world's largest ecosystem restorations forest fires . Why?

Forest Fires
Fires, both man-made and natural, contribute to forest loss. Fire is the oldest method used to clear land for farming and other uses, and it is still widely used in many countries. This is a concern not only because of the added threat to biodiversity and other natural systems, but deforestation ? especially by fire ? is also a key emitter of carbon dioxide. Wildfires are a natural occurrance and serve important ecosystem functions. Forest landscapes are dynamic and change in response to variations in climate and to disturbances from natural sources, such as fires caused by lightning strikes. Many tree species have evolved to take advantage of fire, and periodic burns can contribute to overall forest health. Fires typically move through burning lower branches and clearing dead wood from the forest floor which kick-starts regeneration by providing ideal growing conditions. It also improves floor habitat for many species that prefer relatively open spaces. After a fire burns down a swath of woodland, a sequence of ecological responses, or succession, begins. Amid the charred forest remains, a flourishing of pioneer species begins, usually quick-growing grasses and weeds, followed by a steady advance of slower-growing, taller species of plants. The first trees to emerge are often small pines, followed by larger pines and finally by hardwood species, including oak and hickory. The succession process begins quickly but can take decades or even hundreds of years to move from early ?pioneer? to a ?climax? stage.

http://ajwaters.myweb.uga.edu/
Fire is a powerful, natural phenomenon. Fire has great impact on the people and environment of North America as one saw when in 1988 wildfires broke out all over Yellowstone National Park burning 793,880 acres. For hundreds of years man has suppressed wildfires. The federal government controls fires on federal forestland, and state government controls state forestland. It was believed that by suppressing the fires man ensured a healthy future for the forest. But, as scientists have gathered more information on the effects of fire on forest ecosystems, they have learned that fire exclusion might not have been the best practice for land management. A new technique known as prescribed fire has been used in the last twenty years to reintroduce the natural process of fire back into the forests. While not all the effects of prescribed fire are seen right now, we do know the effects of fire exclusion, and we do know some of the benefits of prescribed fire.
Over the past couple of decades, forest management teams have noticed that fire suppression has caused many problems in the forest ecosystem. Today it is known that fire exclusion causes thick vegetation and large amounts of dead fallen materials. The heavy vegetation and dead material increase the fuel quantity on the forest floor and may cause fires to ignite more easily. When a fire does begin on the thickly covered floor, the blaze burns at a much higher intensity causing more damage to the forest ecosystem.
