Current approaches to modelling the spread of wildland fire : a review

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This article reviews some of the important trends in modelling fire behaviour and the likely directions of future research. A consideration of such fire behaviour models is important because they form the basis of many contemporary fire and resource management models. Fire spread models may be divided into 2 broad classes : those concerned with the quantification of fire behaviour through the prediction of parameters such as rate of spread and fireline intensity, and those concerned with the prediction of the final shape of a fire event. Both types are considered and also the potential applications of GIS and remote sensing technologies
