These can be calculated automatically using Wildland Fire RH Calculator Apps for iOS and Android available for free.

The Fire Behavior Field Reference Guide (FBFRG) describes a range of practices by which fire behavior assessments are conducted for fireline leadership in the field, and by Fire Behavior Analysts and Long Term Fire Analysts in support of more sophisticated is a hands-on publication for use in the field, in fire behavior training, and as a learning reference.

Scott Rasmussen, an independent pollster for over a decade, poses this thesis in his latest book, In Search of Self-Governance: Americans are united in the belief that our political system is broken, that politicians are corrupt, and that neither major political party has the answers.

Rocky Mountain Research Station (Fort Collins, Colo.): Nomographs for estimating surface fire behavior characteristics / (Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Research Station, []), also by Joe H. Scott (page images at HathiTrust). Description: A complete set of nomographs for estimating surface fire rate of spread and flame length for the original 13 and new 40 fire behavior fuel models is presented. The nomographs allow calculation of spread rate and flame length for wind in any direction with respect to slope and allow for nonheading spread directions.
