Abstract : Temperatures in a large natural-fuel fire were measured with bare, shielded aspirated, and shielded unaspirated chromel-alumel thermocouples. With the bare thermocouples, values of 2650F. were recorded--much higher than most previously published data from field and laboratory wood fires. Soil temperatures were consistent with prior work.
