Fire star : a decision support system for fuel management and fire hazard reduction in mediterranean wildland-urban interfaces

Objective

The management of wild land-urban interfaces is one of the key-points of wild land fire prevention policy in Mediterranean regions. A decision support system is developed to assist end-users in the assessment of wild land fire risk for people and structures, and of the preventive efficiency of wild land fuel reduction, on these interfaces. Scientists and end-users will specify the services offered by the system, its content would be based on the predictions of advanced models of wild land fire behaviour and effects. Scientists will improve the physics and the predictive ability of the model of wild land fire behaviour and evaluate its predictions thanks to results of laboratory tests and field experimental fires. They will investigate the response of urban structures to wild land fire impacts. They will describe and model wild land fuel types representative of Mediterranean ecosystems.
