Towards Data-Driven Operational Wildfire Spread Modeling: A Report of the NSF-Funded WIFIRE Workshop

Michael Gollner, Arnaud Trouve, Ilkay Altintas, Jessica Block, Raymond De Callafon, Craig Clements, Anna Cortes, Evan Ellicott, Jean Baptiste Filippi, Mark Finney, Kayo Ide, Mary Ann Jenkins (+5 others)
The workshop was organized around four main topical areas and corresponding breakout groups, including operational rate-of-spread models for wildfire spread, CFD models, wildfire data, and data assimilation  ...  The objectives of the WIFIRE workshop were: (1) to identify technical barriers and milestones that need to be overcome in order to develop validated data-driven wildfire spread models and make them operational  ...  Also, some existing data are not made public and the development of an open-source repository is needed.  ...

A numerical perspective on wildfire plume-rise dynamics

Nadejda Moisseeva
This thesis makes contributions on two fronts: (i) it demonstrates the feasibility of using coupled fire-atmosphere large-eddy simulations to model wildfire smoke dynamics to produce "synthetic" plume  ...  key input into regional and global chemical transport models.  ...  Conclusions Modelling plume rise from wildfires is a complex challenge that lies at the interface of fluid dynamics, atmospheric physics and fire behavior science.  ...
