Chile Wildfire Project

The IEA has been supporting the development of a probabilistic wildfire alert system for Chile by creating a highly interactive software application for end users. The software will provide much greater clarity on the likely environmental risk from wildfires. The project is led by Dr Helen Dacre of the University of Reading in collaboration with the IEA and Assimila.  The results were demonstrated earlier this month (April 6 & 7) to project partners in Chile during a workshop attended by the Chilean Met Service, the University of Santiago, University of Talca and representatives of the Chilean Forestry Commission. The project is funded by the Newton Fund.
