In order to prevent or reduce major loss of life and property, and damage to the environment, it is important to be able to analyse the behaviour of forest fires. To do so requires the development of computer codes that can take into consideration a large number of different parameters. The papers in this book, presented at the third in a successful series on the topic, cover the latest research and applications of computational tools available for analysing and predicting the spread of forest fires. Featured topics include: Air Quality and Health Risks; Computational Methods and Experiments; Detection, Monitoring and Response Systems; Decision Support Systems; Risk and Vulnerability Assessment; Resource Optimisation.
