CASTANEA (Davi, H./Dufrene, E./Granier, A./Le Dantec, V., INRA, France)
- modeling carbon and water cycles in forestsForest modelling approaches and trends
Daily updated forecasting model of fire occurence in natural environment (i.e., forest, shrubs, grassland)
Geographical scope: entire Slovenia
spatial: 1 sq. km.
Set-up: logistic model, based on empyrical data of past occurences of forest fires in relation to weather (daily metheorological data), vegetation status (MODIS satellite data), relief (DTM), proximity to settlements and traffic infrastructure
Model has been integrated into a web-based GIS decision support system (eGIS-UJME) at the Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief
All forest districts are connected into one huge information system. All infromation are kept on a central server running Oracle.
Beside this – huge amount of data is collected on a national level at the SFI – monitoring data (Level I and II), national inventory data....
SILVA.SI – combined data on stand structure for the last 35 years – this enables us different spatio-temporal analyses; unfortunately, available only to SFS
Research highlight support in sustainable forest management
Describe a country research hihlight/finding in the context of modelling which can be relevant for other countries
Describe the main challenges modelers and modelling face in your country so that can respond effectively to management or scientific questions/problems in your country
List a maximum of 5 references, the most innovative ones in your country and that provide added value to other countries.
