Tracking the Long-Term Cost of Wildfire Emissions (ConE)

A collaboration of faculty were awarded a University of Maryland Council on the Environment seed grant initiative (Trouve/Gollner/Ide/Ellicott). The effort aims to quantify wildfire pollutant/aerosol emissions using simulations, data assimilation and satellite observations. Read More



WIFIRE, A collaborative NSF-funded project between UCSD and UMD (Gollner/Trouve) integrates networked observations, e.g., heterogeneous satellite data and real-time remote sensor data, with computational techniques in signal processing, visualization, modeling and data assimilation to provide a scalable, technological, and educational solution to monitor weather patterns to predict a wildfire’s Rate of Spread.
