Wildfire Simulation and Modelling

Wildfires occur on every continent except Antarctica and can cause significant damage to property and human life. The ability to rapidly predict wildfire behaviour is therefore an essential component of both planned and unplanned fire management. Our wildfire simulation research aims to balance the requirements and constraints of predictive accuracy, rapid execution and availability of data.

We are involved in a number of research projects
