Wildfires session at EGU 2008

13-18 April 2008, Vienna, Austria

Within the frame of the European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2008 from 13-18 April 2008 in Vienna, Austria, there will be a special session ‘Spatial and temporal patterns of wildfires: models, theory, and reality’ (NH8.4/BG2.16 – co-organized by the Natural Hazards & Biogeosciences divisions).

Session description:
Wildfires are the result of a large variety and number of interacting components, producing patterns that vary significantly both spatially and temporally. This session will examine models, theory, and empirical studies in wildfire research. Submissions in any one or combination of these three main areas are encouraged, and it is envisioned bringing together wildfire hazard managers, applied researchers, and theoreticians.
Posters are also very much encouraged, as it is planned to have both lively oral and poster sessions.

The best papers will be considered for publication in a Special Issue of Ecological Modelling

Abstract deadline: 14 January 2008

Web site for submission: 

Please note that the deadline for financial applications is 07 December 2007, and for pre-registration is 31 March 2008.
