Introduction_____________________ In recent years, expenditures on wildfire suppression have escalated, forcing reallocations within fiscal years and supplemental budget requests to cover unexpected high costs. Although the issue of cost containment has become widespread, information about what affects the expenditures is not. One study (Gonzales-Caban(More)
In this paper we introduce a numerical procedure for performing dynamic data driven simulations (DDDAS). The main ingredient of our simulation is the multiscale interpolation technique that maps the sensor data into the solution space. We test our method on various synthetic examples. In particular we show that frequent updating of the sensor data in the(More)
We describe a virtual telemetry system that allows us to devise and augment dynamic data-driven application simulations (DDDAS). Virtual telemetry has the advantage that it is inexpensive to produce from real time simulations and readily transmittable using open source streaming software. Real telemetry is usually expensive to receive (if it is even(More)

We describe, devise, and augment dynamic data-driven application simulations (DDDAS). DDDAS offers interesting computational and mathematically unsolved problems. In this paper, we discuss how to update the solution as well as input parameters involved in the simulation based on local measurements. The updates are performed in time. We test our method on(More)
This pilot-study begins to examine pre-service teachers attitudes towards computer games. In the past few years, articles have remarked that when kids who have played games become classroom teachers, games will be more accepted in the classroom. This pilot-study, of a small population of pre-service teachers, showed that over 95% had played computer games(More)
