We are building WRF-Fire, a wildland fire simulator based on the Weather Research Forecasting Model (WRF), and the related data assimilation.

The current work on WRF-Fire is a part of the NSF CDI Wildland fire modeling E-community project. The main goal of this project is to bring together multiple wildland fire models and data assimilation with web-based controls and visualization.

The primary purpose of the Gross cluster is to serve this project, which has provided a majority of the funding.

Objective

The ultimate objective is to build a real-time wildfire modeling system with data assimilation, i.e., adding new data as the model is running and the wildfire is in progress.
