Woolliscroft, M.J., 1968. A REPORT ON FOREST FIRE FIELDWORK (NEW FOREST, MARCH 1966). Fire Research Notes 693
Measurements were made during controlled fires in heathland fuels in order to test relationships found to be valid in the laboratory. In general fire spread theory based on a heat balance seems to be valid but in the field radiation from the flames appears to be a significant or even the controlling factor.
