Climatological risk: wildfires

  
In Science for disaster risk management 2017: knowing better and losing less, Vol. 28034 (2017), pp. 294-305

Abstract

[Excerpt: Conclusions and key messages] There is a vast amount of information on wildfires at local, regional and global scales. However, problems remain at different scales in terms of harmonising or standardising practices for the assessment and management of wildfire risk. [\n] Resilience theory is providing a suitable framework by which to explain abrupt changes in socioecological systems. The importance of community participation and building social capital through collective learning and governance mechanisms has been highlighted as a required basis for building disaster resilience (Aldunce et al., 2015; Aldunce et al., 2016; Montiel and Kraus, 2010; O’Brien et al., ...

Science of preparedness

  
Science, Vol. 357, No. 6356. (14 September 2017), pp. 1073-1073, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.aap9025

Abstract

Our hearts go out to those affected by hurricanes Harvey and Irma and by earlier monsoons across South Asia. These events are compelling reminders of the important role that science must play in preparing for disasters. But preparation is challenging, as reflected in the many facets of the “science of preparedness.” Certainly, modeling and forecasting storms are critical, but so are analyses of how agencies, communities, and individuals interact to understand and implement preparedness initiatives.

Piano regionale di previsione, prevenzione e lotta attiva contro gli incendi boschivi 2011-2013 - Revisione 2013

  
(2013)

Abstract

[Excerpt] [:(Original language): Introduzione e quadro normativo] Il Piano Regionale Antincendi (P.R.AI.) è redatto in conformità a quanto sancito dalla legge quadro nazionale in materia di incendi boschivi (legge n. 353/2000) e alle relative linee guida emanate dal Ministro Delegato per il Coordinamento della Protezione Civile (D.M. 20 dicembre 2001). In attesa di una normativa regionale di recepimento, la materia è disciplinata, anche in Sardegna, dalla citata legge quadro n. 353/2000. [\n] Il Piano è volto a programmare e coordinare l’attività antincendio degli Enti Pubblici e di ...

 

Regional variation in fire weather controls the reported occurrence of Scottish wildfires

  
PeerJ, Vol. 4 (02 November 2016), e2649, https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.2649

Abstract

Fire is widely used as a traditional habitat management tool in Scotland, but wildfires pose a significant and growing threat. The financial costs of fighting wildfires are significant and severe wildfires can have substantial environmental impacts. Due to the intermittent occurrence of severe fire seasons, Scotland, and the UK as a whole, remain somewhat unprepared. Scotland currently lacks any form of Fire Danger Rating system that could inform managers and the Fire and Rescue Services (FRS) of periods when there is ...

 

Assessment of fire danger conditions

  
Australian Forestry, Vol. 13, No. 1. (1 January 1949), pp. 53-62, https://doi.org/10.1080/00049158.1949.10675766

Abstract

SUMMARY At the Yallourn and Kiewa undertakings of the State Electricity Commission of Victoria, a simple fire danger meter is being used to assist the fire protection staff in their judgment of fire danger conditions in the surrounding forests. On this meter, the fire danger rating is arrived at by adding a burning index, based on weather conditions on the day, to a season index, based on past weather history for the season. The formulae for calculating these indices are empirical, ...

Crowdsourcing geographic information for disaster response: a research frontier

  
International Journal of Digital Earth, Vol. 3, No. 3. (15 April 2010), pp. 231-241, https://doi.org/10.1080/17538941003759255

Abstract

Geographic data and tools are essential in all aspects of emergency management: preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation. Geographic information created by amateur citizens, often known as volunteered geographic information, has recently provided an interesting alternative to traditional authoritative information from mapping agencies and corporations, and several recent papers have provided the beginnings of a literature on the more fundamental issues raised by this new source. Data quality is a major concern, since volunteered information is asserted and carries none of the ...

 

As volcano rumbles, scientists plan for aviation alerts

  
Science, Vol. 345, No. 6200. (29 August 2014), pp. 990-990, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.345.6200.990

Abstract

Iceland's Bárðarbunga volcano, buried under the giant Vatnajökull glacier, has been holding scientists in suspense over the last 2 weeks, producing frequent seismic rumbles but no signs yet of an actual eruption. But scientists at the Icelandic Meteorological Office (IMO) in Reykjavík are now seasoned by back-to-back eruptions at Eyjafjallajökull in 2010 and Grímsvötn in 2011 that produced large ash clouds and caused costly air traffic snarls. IMO is leading a European Union–funded effort called FUTUREVOLC to build a comprehensive database ...

 

Environmental risk and assessment modelling - Scientific needs and expected advancements

  
In Air, Water and Soil Quality Modelling for Risk and Impact Assessment (2007), pp. 29-44, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4020-5877-6_3

Abstract

Environmental risk and impact assessment and prediction modelling is one of the most important instruments in the environmental security management and preparedness, and it needs further development in the quickly changing world and society. Most of the previous studies in this field considered, as a rule, only separate aspects of the risk and impact assessments. New realities and problems in the environmental security, supercomputer facilities, request a new generation of the assessments and prediction tools for the risk and impact assessments. ...
