Welcome to FIRESTORM

Ongoing climatic changes have created more frequent drought and heat wave conditions that trigger the occurrence of Extreme Wildfire Events (EWE).

The FIRESTORM Consortium will dedicate great attention and effort to disseminate and promote the knowledge developed in the project to the scientific community, to operational bodies, to decision makers and to the public. 

Besides the usual scientific dissemination indicators we intend to promote activities that will assure that the outcome of the project will reach a wide audience. 


What is our goal?

We intend to look at historical data on fire occurrence in Portugal

identify the conditions that lead to Extreme Wildfire Events

and to define methods to predict EWE in space and in time.

a better knowledge
