SFE Webinar: QUIC-Fire: A Fast-Running Simulation Tool for Prescribed Fire Planning
May 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
A free one hour webinar from Los Alamos National Lab, US Forest Service Southern Research Station, Tall Timbers Research Station, the Southern Fire Exchange, and the University of Florida.
Presenters: Rodd Linn, Ph.D., Los Alamos National Lab, Scott Goodrick, Ph.D., USFS Southern Research Station, and Kevin Hiers, Tall Timbers Research Station
Webinar Description: Recent advances in wildland fire behavior models (e.g. FIRETEC) utilizing high spatial and temporal resolution fluid dynamics calculations have facilitated complex modeling of fire-atmospheric feedbacks. Unfortunately this fire modeling approach requires exceptional computational resources that are unlikely to be available to most wildland fire managers. QUIC-Fire is a new physics-based cellular automata fire spread tool that that offers advanced fire modeling capabilities without the demand for extraordinary computational resources. QUIC-Fire is a new step towards expanding next generation fire model access to a wider audience of practitioners and users. Following the webinar there will be time reserved for audience questions.
