Fois, Cinzia (2015) Simulazione del comportamento di grandi incendi storici in ambiente mediterraneo mediante il simulatore FARSITE. Doctoral Thesis.
Wildfires are a problem in the Mediterranean area, due to the weather characterized by hot and dry summers. In many fire regimes the link between number and size of fires shows how a small number of events is responsible for most of the area burned and most of the damage (both economic and environmental) frequently associated with loss of human lives. These kind of fires usually tend to occur under specific and relatively uncommon meteorological conditions, typically involving combinations of high temperature, low relative humidity, prolonged drought and strong winds. They display a fire behaviour pattern (like crowing and spotting) not observed in small fires. For this reason fighting them is very difficult.
