From Observation to Modeling in Open/Wildfires

Full information: pdf-icon

The objectives of the research are two-fold:


• On one hand further developing the existing methodology (based on image rectification and texture segmentation) of fire behaviour computation from airborne observation. Estimation of its scope of application (effect of terrain) and development of an open source platform. A new approach using stereo-vision would also be investigated. Data collected in previous fieldwork would be available as well as new data from forthcoming experiments.


• On the other hand improving data integration and plume simulation in fire-atmospheric system. If data are collected at high spatial and time scale, the plume can be directly modelled from fire flux extracted from observation. By simulating such fire plume with high resolution atmospheric model, we will be able to investigate the impact of fire induced fluxes from the flaming and the smouldering zones on the plume composition and evolution.

Requisites

We seek a candidate with a strong motivation for scientific research. He/She has to have a physics or engineering background and a Master’s degree with a good student record. The candidate has also to be fluent in English and Spanish, both written and spoken.
