A Platform for Proactive Fire Management
BurnPro3D is designed for use in fire mitigation by land managers and burn bosses to prioritize land for treatment, and plan and conduct prescribed burns. The platform is powered by the next generation WIFIRE Data and Model Commons. It provides diverse users a common ground for understanding risks and tradeoffs related to prescribed burns through detailed models of vegetation and fire behavior.
BurnPro3D uses a coupled fire/atmosphere model to capture the interaction between user-defined complex ignition patterns and environmental conditions. With support from the National Science Foundation, the BurnPro3D team is developing emerging AI techniques to transform the characterization of the fire environment, including dynamic site-specific three-dimensional fuels and winds.
