Real-Time Data Driven Wildland Fire Modeling

We are developing a wildland fire model based on semi-empirical relations that estimate the rate of spread of a surface fire and post-frontal heat release, coupled with WRF, the Weather Research and

A Wildland Fire Physical Model Well Suited to Data Assimilation

In this article, we focus on a simplified two-dimensional fire model with some three-dimensional effects. The model takes into account the moisture content and the energy lost in the vertical

A wildland fire model based on semi-empirical relations for the spread rate of a surface fire and post-frontal heat release is coupled with the Weather Research and Forecasting atmospheric model

Data assimilation for wildland fires

Two wildland fire models and methods for assimilating data in those models are presented and data assimilation methods are developed combining EnKF with Tikhonov regularization to avoid nonphysical states and with the ideas of registration and morphing from image processing to allow large position corrections.
