Wildfire Mitigation Systems WMS
Wildfires are both increasing in frequency and intensity. This phenomena results in higher societal cost, and contributes to long term climate change. Large wildfires are difficult to control with methods such as water drops and fire breaks. These techniques are limited by scale, as result most of these wildfires run a natural course of fuel consumption as the only sure termination.
Many techniques have been developed for wildfire mitigation including public education, fuel management, zoning restrictions and many more. The GSE WMS system represents an important step in this field, by employing natural processes such as rainfall and wind to both prevent, manage and extinguish wildfires, while significantly reducing risks to firefighters and communities.
GSE is a research group which is leading in the development of simple natural solutions to big problems, such as energy from dynamic gravity and regional geo-engineering techniques. The WMS is the result of this research. WMS ideally should be employed when conditions predict wildfire activity, but they can also be employed in the center of a fire zone, and operate without an operator. Operation of a series of WMS devices in the center of a wildfire can effectively reduce oxygen availability, for the fire, as air saturation is optimized.
WMS devices can be located to protect a particular area or evacuation
route. When employed along an evacuation route sufficient energy can be
recovered from vehicle movement to power the systems. Energy can be
recovered from moving traffic with our PECs, (pressure to electricity
converters),devices, which are employed on the roadways.
Agricultural scale misting for cooling and pesticide application is a well established, yet very similar technique. Some concerns have been raised about the potential human and health impacts of WMS operations, due to this often sad history. Research indicates that the dense mists are close to those in a wet sauna.
Each WMS device can deliver as much water to the atmosphere in the fire zone, as an aircraft water drop, every 10-15 minutes. Effectively reducing the cost of wildfire fighting by at least 50%. Mist leaving the WMS can have the force of 110 mph, which can deliver, about 24% of the generated mist to the productive cloud layer. WMS is a highly scalable solution to nascent, emergent and active wildfires. Retardants can be delivered by the systems, yet they are generally not necessary, which is a boon to ecological sustainability.
Each WMS, 36" radius, tower can be erected in less than 4 hours, and when strategically located in or near wildfire prone regions, can be up and running in less than 8 hours.
WMS Installation Illustration:
These tower can convert unpressurized water, from a lake or river., into either a heavy mist, or increased rainfall which is the most effective methods of controlling natural fires. Each WMS tower can deliver hundreds of gallons per minute, of buoyant water molecules to the local atmosphere. A set of these devices strategically located can create both cool zones, which inhibit wildfire expansion, as well as regional rainfall which can suppress even large wildfires in a few days.
WMS devices located near an active fire will lift hundreds of thousands of gallons (GPM) of water per unit to the productive cloud layer (PBL), via evaporation from the active fire. An array of 20 strategically located WMS units can bring even the largest fires under control within a few days with adequate energy and water supplies.
The systems can be fed from municipal water or from a lake or river. Each WMS device can consume 2.5-3 million gallons of water each day. The systems are constructed of approved long polymers, and can provide many years of use and service to the community.
The impact of this increased humidity, as mist or air saturation, is to both suppress the spread of the fires and to alter the fuel conversion cycles that feed fire expansion. This a common sense way to convert fuel, or vehicle traffic, into increased humidity and intensifying the level of rain conditions.
The WMS system is new and we can still benefit from your questions and comments. commentsWMS@gravitationalsystem.com
