The team leading this consortium has vast experience in:
- Indicator-based fire mapping
- Fire simulation and prediction under alternative land use and fire suppression scenarios
- Fire severity assessment and modelling and its effects on ecosystem functioning and services
- Remote sensing tools applied to land system analysis and modelling, as well as with post-fire recovery assessment and modelling based on remotely sensed functional indicators (including fire severity)
The participation of key stakeholders, the community, private and public companies, and other interested parties is critical and will be developed by the project research team, thus requiring expertise in the following:
- Data quality management in collaborative networks
- Design and development of web-based infrastructures for data production, evaluation and sharing.
The project development has a participative and inclusive character, thus bringing the forest management community and the scientific community closer together
To design the fire severity product and service, relevant stakeholders will be engaged in the project’s development, participating actively in key moments and decisions such as the co-design of the severity products and the definition of a roadmap for the future (post-project) development of the web service.
