Fire Spread Data

🤝 Join us in the effort of NERO to reproduce the progression and behavior of wildfires of interest across 🇪🇺 Europe and 🌎 beyond!

👉 We invite you to download the NERO Data Retrieval Template (DRT) to indicate the most relevant wildfires for your country/region and to provide information for at least one of the the columns under the “Fire Spread” section. In case you can do so, fill in your information and send the DRT back to WG1 Leader. The deadline for submitting your information is currently set on Friday 14 June 2024. If you want to learn more about the importance of collecting data for reproducing the propagation of wildfires, please visit this post.

‼️ Note that no actual data sharing will take place at this stage. As soon as we collect all DRTs, we will follow up with you to discuss how your data could be shared and managed within the NERO network. At this second stage, you will have the opportunity to review NERO’s Data Management Plan (DMP) that we are currently compiling, before agreeing to share your data.

💪 By contributing to this effort of NERO, you become part of a community devoted to making a difference in understanding how extreme 🔥 wildfires spread and behave, not only in Europe but also across the world!
