Title: Land use change interactions with fire in Mediterranean Landscapes (LUCIFER) / LUCIFER
Language: English
Description: The project aimed to assess the interactions between fire and landscape structures in fire-prone areas in Mediterranean countries. Fire effects on the ecosystems and their influence on species changes were evaluated. Based on past landscapes and fire incidence, models of landscape change and its significance for species dynamics were developed to evaluate fire risk and other threats to the ecosystem. The project ran from 1996 to 2000.

Title: Prescribed burning as a tool for the Mediterranean region - a management approach (FIRE TORCH) / FIRE TORCH
Language: EnglishFrench
Description: The global objective of the FIRE TORCH project was to improve the prescribed burning decision making process, creating the operational basis that will support an extensive use of the technique. The four general objectives were: to identify and analyze the opportunities for prescribed fire development; to model prescribed burning environmental effects and operational know-how; to develop a Decision Support System focusing on the different stages of a burning operation: prescription, execution and evaluation; and to contribute to the technique diffusion and practitioners training. As results a field guide for managers to appraise information necessary to conduct a prescribed burn, and a training and decision support system consisting of integrated software tools were developed. The project ran from 1998 to 2000.

Title: Fire, Fuel, and Smoke Science Program (FFS) / FFS
Language: English
Description: The Fire, Fuel, and Smoke Science Program of the Rocky Mountain Research Station is located at the Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory in Missoula, Montana. The Program conducts international, cutting edge work in wildland fire research from fire physics to fire ecology. The Program performs work under its national charter to conduct fundamental and applied research relating to wildland fire processes, terrestrial and atmospheric effects of fire, and ecological adaptations to fire. In addition, the Program develops associated knowledge tools and applications for both managers and scientists. Original research includes: fire behavior prediction modeling, soil heating modeling and effects, landscape fire ecosystem dynamics, smoke emissions and dispersion modeling, and fire danger rating.

Title: Fundación Centro de Estudios Ambientales del Mediterráneo (CEAM) / Centre for the study of the Mediterranean Environment
Language: EnglishSpanish
Description: CEAM was created in 1991 under the auspices of the Valencian Autonomous Government and Bancaja. It is a Centre of Applied Research. CEAM was created as a response to the need for potentiating research and development in environmental technology in the Mediterranean countries, where applied engineering within very rigid (mono-)discipline structures has traditionally predominated. CEAM was established as a multidiscipline centre and, as such, its research has been concentrated in inter-related thematic areas where it has achieved recognized international expertise. Air Pollution Programme; Pollution Effects Programme (Research into air pollution effects on different plant communities - natural and agricultural - in the Valencia region, with the aim of developing minimisation strategies at various levels); Forest Research Programme (Research and development of new management techniques for Mediterranean conditions, especially in regard to the restoration of forests and shrublands affected by fire and desertification processes); Meteorology and Climatology Programme (Analysis of the mechanisms and meteorological conditions - at synoptic and regional scales - leading to meteorological risk situations on the Spanish east coast, with special emphasis on torrential rains and forest fires).
