Extreme Environments: Fire (2008)

Episode 15
Available worldwide

Forests, wildlife, property and often human life are endangered when fires break out. Fire strikes when the air is hot and the land is dry – and it spreads when high winds fan the flames. Lightening is the major source of naturally occurring fires. This episode looks at the California fires of 2007, the Los Alamos Research Laboratory super computer called “Blue Mountain” that simulated unfolding weather patterns, as well as the Fire Camera system in Australia and the fire festival in Spain.
