Progress in Fire Modelling in the UK & Europe (11-12 Jan 2023)

Progress in Fire Modelling in the UK & Europe (11-12 Jan 2023)

The Leverhulme Centre for Wildfires, Environment and Society is hosting the next in a regular series of meetings that brings together members of the UK fire modelling community, particularly those working with JULES-INFERNO, to discuss ongoing work.

The meeting offers an opportunity to discuss synergies with other fire-related projects both in the UK and Europe, and to discuss data products that are being used (or could be used) for model calibration and validation. The meeting consists of a series of presentations and dedicated time for discussion.
