Wildfire Visualizations

Terry Clark, Janice Coen, Don Middleton, Tim Scheitlin, UCAR

This site offers a series of 3D wildfire simulations, illustrating how fires move on different types of terrain and how the flames move in response to atmospheric conditions. Also included is a computer simulation of an actual wildfire, illustrating how wind, terrain, and fuel influence the growth an motion of a fire. All movies are available in QuickTime, Real, and MPEG format.
