RandomFront 2.3 A physical parametrisation of fire-spotting for operational fire spread models: Implementation in WRF-Sfire and response analysis with LSFire+
(Geoscientific Model Development, 2018-12)
Fire-spotting is often responsible for a dangerous flare up in the wildfire and causes secondary ignitions isolated from the primary fire zone leading to perilous situations. The main aim of the present research to provide ...
Surrogate-based global sensitivity analysis for turbulence and fire-spotting effects in regional-scale wildland fire modeling
(Stochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment, 2018-08)
In presence of strong winds, wildfires feature nonlinear behavior, possibly inducing fire-spotting. We present a global sensitivity analysis of a new sub-model for turbulence and fire-spotting included in a wildfire spread ...
Concurent multi-scale physical parametrization of fire-spotting: A study on the role of macro- and meso-scale characteristics of the system
(Advances in Forest Fire Research, 2018)
The strong impact of wildfires in terms of lives and homes lost and of damage to ecosystems, calls for an urgent improvement in the risk management. The aim of the present research is the improvement of these software ...
