About this book

Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Forest Fires III includes selected papers presented at the Third International Conference on Modelling, Monitoring and Management of Forest Fires, held in May 2012. The Conference is the third in a series of biennial conferences organised by the Wessex Institute of Technology on the topic of applying computer techniques to the difficult field of forest fire prevention, management, and mitigation.


In order to prevent or reduce major loss of life and property, and damage to the environment, it is important to be able to analyse the behaviour of forest fires. To do so requires the development of computer codes that can take into consideration a large number of different parameters. The papers in this book cover the latest research and applications of computational tools available for analysing and predicting the spread of forest fires.

Featured topics include: Air Quality and Health Risks; Computational Methods and Experiments; Detection, Monitoring and Response Systems; Decision Support Systems; Risk and Vulnerability Assessment; Resource Optimisation.
