Forest fires analysis and mitigation requires the development of computer codes that can take into consideration a large number of different parameters. The papers in this book, presented at the third in a successful series on the topic, cover the latest research and applications of available computational tools to analyse and predict the spread of forest fires in an attempt to prevent or reduce major loss of life and property as well as damage to the environment. Featured topics include: Risk and Vulnerability Assessment; Computational Methods and Experiments; Environmental Impact Models; Air Pollution and Health Risk Models; Eco-Remediation Models; Decision Support Systems;Monitoring Systems; Emergency Response Systems; Economic Impact; Human Behaviour and Education, Rural-Urban Interface; Case Studies.
