Evaluating alternative fuel treatment strategies to reduce wildfire losses in a Mediterranean area

Publications Posted on: October 07, 2016
The goal of this work is to evaluate by a modeling approach the effectiveness of alternative fuel treatment strategies to reduce potential losses from wildfires in Mediterranean areas. We compared strategic fuel treatments located near specific human values vs random locations, and treated 3, 9 and 15% of a 68,000 ha study area located in Sardinia, Italy.

Analyzing seasonal patterns of wildfire exposure factors in Sardinia, Italy

Publications Posted on: June 15, 2015
In this paper, we applied landscape scale wildfire simulation modeling to explore the spatiotemporal patterns of wildfire likelihood and intensity in the island of Sardinia (Italy). We also performed wildfire exposure analysis for selected highly valued resources on the island to identify areas characterized by high risk.
