Abstract
Fire products such as smokes and heat which are introduced into the atmosphere as a result of burning grasses and vehicles are identified and factors which influence their amounts and concentrations are discussed. When possible, factors affecting the optical properties of the fire perturbed atmosphere such as smoke particle size density distributions and optical density are presented. The impetus for the study lies in the need to assess the performance of electro-optical sensors in an adverse environment and the paper is aimed toward identifying factors to be considered in overall system performance modeling.
