  1. 1. A virtual reality experiment on driving speed in smoke during a wildfire evacuation

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Författare :Niklas Wetterberg; [2020]
    Nyckelord :VR; Driving; Speed Choice; Wildfire; WUI; Virtual Reality; Smoke; Evacuation; Reduced Visibility; Driving Simulation; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis investigates how individual driving behaviour during an evacuation is affected by the presence of smoke on the evacuation route. The thesis aims are to determine a correlation between the choice of speed and the density of the smoke, determine if there is a difference in choice of speed in relation to the previously driven road segment (in thicker or thinner smoke), and determine if the road positioning (specifically the lateral position in the cross section) is dependent on the smoke density.

    Master-uppsats, Uppsala universitet/Luft-, vatten och landskapslära

    Författare :Anton Nygren; [2019]
    Nyckelord :wildfire; Pedrógão Grande; structural similarity; SSIM; FLEXPART; MERRA2; CO; emission source height; skogsbränder; Pedrógão Grande; strukturell likhet; SSIM; FLEXPART; MERRA2; CO; utsläppshöjd;

    Sammanfattning : One of the worst wildfires in Portugal in 2017 on June17- 21 started at the central part of Pedrógão Grande and spread fast to the surrounding areas Góis, Pampilhosa da Serra and Arganil. The wildfire took 64 lives and a large smoke plume was observed. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Community structure of polyporous fungi after wildfire in boreal forest

    Master-uppsats, SLU/Dept. of Wildlife, Fish and Environmental Studies

    Författare :Isak Vahlström; [2019]
    Nyckelord :biodiversity; community composition; natural disturbance; forest fire; polyporous fungi; ; wood-decaying fungi;

    Sammanfattning : Wildfire is a natural disturbance that creates large amounts dead wood and contribute to a landscape of different successional stages, important for biodiversity. The number of wildfires have declined in boreal Fennoscandia due to effective fire suppression. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Evacuation behaviour intentions based on the summer 2018 Swedish forest fire season

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Avdelningen för Brandteknik

    Författare :Johanna Hahlin; [2019]
    Nyckelord :Behaviour; Bushfire; Evacuation; Evacuation behaviour; Fires in Sweden 2018; Forest fire; Forest fire evacuation; Questionnaire; Survey; Wildfire; Wildfire evacuation; Technology and Engineering;

    Sammanfattning : A large number of forest fires occurred in Sweden during the summer 2018 on a total area of 21 000 hectares. Between 300 and 500 residents were evacuated from their home due to these fires. This situation was unfamiliar in Sweden at the time, and the routines for dealing with such crisis were challenged.

  5. 5. GIS-based crisis communication : A platform for authorities to communicate with the public during wildfire

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Geoinformatik; KTH/Geoinformatik

    Författare :Felix Althén Bergman; Evelina Östblom; [2019]
    Nyckelord :GIS; crisis communication; forest fire; Google Earth Engine; data management;

    Sammanfattning : Today, people are used to having technology as a constant aid. This also sets expectations that information should always be available. LÄS MER
