MEDITERRANEAN GRID OF MULTI-RISK DATA AND MODELS

Objective

The MEDIGRID proposal aims to create a distributed framework of multi-risk assessment for post-fire natural disasters. In order to achieve the above strategic objective several parallel tasks must be accomplished and a number of particular objectives to be addressed. The proposal will integrate in the above framework models of forest fire behaviour, soil erosion, vegetation regeneration, flash floods and landslides, developed or elaborated in frame of previous EC projects. These models will be upgraded to web applications in order to run remotely as web services over the internet. A distributed data warehouse with EO and other digital spatial data, combined with field measurements will be created by the project partners. Data sets will refer to countries that have suffered important forest fires during the last summer and where post fire disaster occurence is considered high for the next years. The data will be defined according to the requirements of the models that will be integrated and tested within MEDIGRID. The data structure and organization will be designed in order to comply with the concept of respective EC initiatives (INSPIRE, EU-MEDIN, ESPON) for data standardisation. These data will be also used by the individual models in the context of a models validation framework. The entire system of models and data will be shaped further as a multi-risk assessment and decision support information platform. A portal will be used as the access point to the risk assesment web services as well as to the data sets of the data warehouse.
