2017 Conference on Fire Prediction Across Scales

October 23, 2017 (All day) to October 25, 2017 (All day)
Columbia University

Realistic models of fire activity and behavior are necessary for operational fire management, and to understand past and future changes in fire activity. Developing such models, however requires taking into account vegetation cover, land use practices, fire management capacity, extreme weather, and climate variability. To help foster knowledge exchange among the diverse fields of expertise involved in fire prediction, the Columbia University Initiative on Extreme Weather and Climate is hosting a 2.5-day conference, organized around the themes of “Fire Prediction” and “Fire Management and Impacts”.
