The 1988 Fires in Yellowstone
Dress, Abby
Science Teacher, v75 n2 p38-39 Feb 2008
The 1988 fires at Yellowstone National Park burned 1.4 million acres in the tri-state areas of Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho--encompassing the greater Yellowstone area--and burned some 800,000 acres within the park itself (Franke 2000). This article discusses this extraordinary fire event and contains helpful resources for bringing the science of fire, or fire ecology, into the classroom. (Contains 2 online resources.)
