Size of wildfires in the Euro-Mediterranean region: observations and theoretical analysis

Natural Hazards and Earth System Science, Vol. 15, No. 6. (23 June 2015), pp. 1331-1341,


MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) satellite observations of fire size and ERA-Interim meteorological reanalysis are used to derive a relationship between burnt area and wind speed over the Mediterranean region and Eastern Europe. The largest wildfire size does not show a strong response with respect to wind speed in Eastern Europe. In the Mediterranean, as intuitively expected, the burnt area associated with the largest wildfires is an increasing function of wind speed for moderate temperature anomalies. In situations of severe heatwaves, ...


Spatial vegetation patterns and imminent desertification in Mediterranean arid ecosystems

Nature, Vol. 449, No. 7159. (13 September 2007), pp. 213-217,


Humans and climate affect ecosystems and their services1, which may involve continuous and discontinuous transitions from one stable state to another2. Discontinuous transitions are abrupt, irreversible and among the most catastrophic changes of ecosystems identified1. For terrestrial ecosystems, it has been hypothesized that vegetation patchiness could be used as a signature of imminent transitions3, 4. Here, we analyse how vegetation patchiness changes in arid ecosystems with different grazing pressures, using both field data and a modelling approach. In the modelling approach, ...


Cellular‐Automata Models Applied to Natural Hazards

Computing in Science & Engineering, Vol. 2, No. 3. (01 May 2000), pp. 42-51,


The concept of self‐organized criticality evolved from studies of three simple cellular‐automata models: the forest‐fire, slider‐block, and sandpile models. Each model is associated with natural hazards, which have frequency‐size statistics that are well approximated by power‐law distributions. These distributions have important implications for probabilistic hazard assessments. ...

A simulation software of forest fires based on two-level cellular automata

In Forest Fire Research & Wildland Fire Safety (2002)


A software system for the simulation of small-scale fires in Mediterranean landscapes is presented. The software uses a model of fire spreading deriving from the classical Rothermel’s Rate-Of-Spread theory. It exports this method, based on American forests peculiarities, using Valette’s classes of inflammability, tested for Mediterranean coverage. The forest is modeled as a two-layer cellular automata: the upper layer representing the crowns of the trees and the lower one the surface coverage. Slope, air temperature and moisture data are introduced through ...


Simulation of forest fire fronts using cellular automata

Advances in Engineering Software, Vol. 38, No. 6. (June 2007), pp. 372-378,


In this work a new model for fire front spreading based on two-dimensional cellular automata is proposed. It is a more realistic modification of the model introduced by Karafyllidis and Thanailakis (see [Karafyllidis I, Thanailakis A. A model for predicting forest fire spreading using cellular automata. Ecol Model 1997;99:87–97]), which is based on the transfer of fractional burned area. Specifically, the model proposed in this work introduces a more accurate factor of propagation from a diagonal neighbor cell and includes, in ...


Modelling dynamic spatial processes: simulation of urban future scenarios through cellular automata

Landscape and Urban Planning, Vol. 64, No. 3. (15 July 2003), pp. 145-160,


One of the most potentially useful applications of cellular automata (CA) from the point of view of spatial planning is their use in simulations of urban growth at local and regional level. Urban simulations are of particular interest to urban and regional planners since the future impacts of actions and policies are critically important. However, urban growth processes are usually difficult to simulate. This paper addresses from a theoretical point of view the question of why to use CA for urban ...

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.
