Fire Control

Researchers at BYU are trying to help predict how wild fires burn. This article specifically talks about Thomas H. Fletcher, a fire expert and professor of chemical engineering at BYU stated that “We’re trying to take some of the unpredictability out of the fire.

Though the article talked about the Utah forest fires, the same type of research is relevant on a global scale. Forest fires are hard to stop, and if we can accurately predict the path the fire will go we will be able to contain them much easier, causing less damage to forests and wild life.

Though this is brand new research i believe it is going to be important when talking about the future of wild fires.
