  • Automated location of active fire perimeters in aerial infrared imaging using unsupervised edge detectors 

    Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Rios, Oriol; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2018-04-23)
    Article
    Open Access
    A variety of remote sensing techniques have been applied to forest fires. However, there is at present no system capable of monitoring an active fire precisely in a totally automated manner. Spaceborne sensors show too ...

    Airborne thermal infrared (TIR) imaging systems are being increasingly used for wild fire tactical monitoring since they show important advantages over spaceborne platforms and visible sensors while becoming much more ...
  • GIS-based integration of spatial and remote sensing data for wildfire monitoring 

    Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Rios, Oriol; Mata Miquel, Cristian; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2018)
    Conference report

    The impact of wildfires on society is increasing. Annually burned area, fire season length and fire severity have increased during the last decade in several regions of the world, and a number of tragic events have occurred ...
  • Interpolation framework to speed up near-surface wind simulations for data-driven wildfire applications 

    Rios, Oriol; Jahn, Wolfram; Pastor Ferrer, Elsa; Valero Pérez, Mario Miguel; Planas Cuchi, Eulàlia (2018-04-23)
    Article
    Open Access
    Local wind fields that account for topographic interaction are a key element for any wildfire spread simulator. Currently available tools to generate near-surface winds with acceptable accuracy do not meet the tight time ...
