Aug 02, 2018
In the video below you can find the evolution of the dreadful fire incurred on 23rd July 2018 in East Attiki, as it was forecasted by the WRF-SFIRE system of the National Observatory of Athens.
WRF-SFIRE is a coupled atmosphere-wildfire model, which combines the Weather Research and Forecasting model (WRF) with a fire spread model.
The development of this system is being imlpemented in the context of the INTERREG BALKAN-MEDITERRANEAN 2014-2020 "DISARM" project (Drought and fIre obServatory and eArly waRning systeM) with the participation of Greece, Cyprus and Bulgaria.
