The probability increases as the fireline width increases, and also as the fire's flame length decreases. More interestingly, uncertainties in width and flame length affect the computed containment probabilities, and can thus indirectly affect the optimum allocation of fire-fighting resources. Uncertainty about the fireline width that will be produced can often affect containment chances as much as uncertainty in flame length.10.1071/WF9930179https://www.fs.fed.us/psw/publications/mees/psw_1993_mees001.pdf883.0 KBhttps://www.fs.usda.gov/treesearch/pubs/55661556610International Journal of Wildland Fire. 3(3): 179-185.033179185T0Mees, Romain; Strauss, David; Chase, Richard; 07-FEB-2018 14:20:2007-FEB-2018 14:20:33AY07-FEB-2018 14:20:33Mees, Romain001Strauss, David002Chase, Richard003Mees, Romain001Strauss, David002Chase, Richard003This article was written and prepared by U.S. Government employees on official time, and is therefore in the public domain.
