A conference-debate entitled “Modelling and monitoring forest fires” will be held at the Académie des Sciences on December 5th, 2023. Its aim is to provide an overview of scientific research into the characterization, prevention, prediction and remote sensing of wildland fires.
Mélanie Rochoux, researcher in the CECI unit at Cerfacs, will talk about new simulation tools such as coupled atmospheric modeling and data assimilation to help better understand and anticipate wildland fire behavior. Her research work is carried out in close collaboration with CNRM/Météo-France, notably as part of the ANR FIREFLY project which has just started.
