Smoke transportation and emissions modelling
Smoke transportation and emissions modelling - improving the capability to model and predict the spread and accumulation or dissipation of smoke for planned and unplanned fires through improved smoke trajectory and accumulation or dissipation modelling.
This research is being undertaken for the Victorian Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI).
The project aims to:
- improve DEPI’s capability to model and predict the spread and accumulation or dissipation of smoke for planned and unplanned fire events through improved smoke trajectory and accumulation or dissipation modelling.
Information needed to improve quantitative concentration predictions to achieve this includes:
- a better understanding of fuel/fire behaviour/emissions;
- a better meteorological modelling (to improve uncertainty in model forecast fields);
- a better understanding of higher resolution climate processes; and
- validation by field and remote sensing monitoring.
The project will provide DEPI with:
- a review of smoke modelling science, modelling and technologies and summary of good practice;
- an appropriate smoke modelling monitoring and improvement framework;
- training and development of DEPI personnel in smoke management science – including prediction and monitoring; and
- new knowledge of smoke modelling through PhD and post doctoral research.
