International seminar on Modelling of Wildfires and Environmental Impacts

IMG 4611Holistic project coordinators from the Municipality of Ajdovščina and Friuli-Venezia Giulia Region participated in the international seminar on "Modelling of Wildfires and their Environmental Impacts" which has been held between 22 and 26 June 2015 in Miramare (Trieste), Italy and organised by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics.

Discussions held at the workshops stemmed from the fact that wild fires pose a direct threat to populations, ecosystems and economy and are a dangerous source of air pollution. What is more, wild fires are becoming more frequent in certain regions due to the climate and land use changes. Consequently, it is important to better understand the occurrence and the dynamics of wild fires as well as their environmental impacts. One of the methods for better understanding is also numerical modelling, which was the main topic of the Trieste workshop.

 

The workshop gave an overview of the state-of-art in wildfire modelling and existing model applications ranging from explicit simulations to risk assessment. Speakers, coming from the European Union and the United States of America, shared their expertise in different domains including computational fluid dynamics, meteorology, climate and ecology. Workshops were open for participation for scientists and students from all countries, which are members of the United Nations, UNESCO or IAEA. Participants from African, Asian, South American and European countries attended the workshop, meaning that knowledge exchange and collaboration between students and specialists of fire modelling from all around the world was fostered.

Holistic coordinators informally presented project’s objectives, outputs and concrete results to interested participants and explained Holistic’s contribution to a better fire safety.
