Influence of ignition type on fire behavior in semi-mature jack pine: Fo123-2/19-2017E-PDF

"Line-ignition experimental burning was conducted in jack pine stands in two locations in Ontario. A series of 12 fires were carried out between 1973 and 1983 at Kenshoe Lake near White River, Ontario. After the completion of the initial series of experimental line-ignition fires at both Kenshoe Lake and Sharpsand Creek, a decision was made to investigate the growth behavior of point-source ignition fires on an adjacent site at the Sharpsand Creek site. The objective of this new study was to determine the length of time a fire, using point-source ignition, required to reach equilibrium spread rate levels so readily observed during the line ignition studies. It was assumed that all point-source ignited fires would, given time and constant fuel conditions, reach the equilibrium spread conditions observed for the two earlier line-ignition fire studies. This report presents the results from both point- and line ignition fires conducted between 1984 and 1991 at the Sharpsand Creek site"--Introd., p. 6, 7.
