AiS Challenge Team Abstract


Team Number: 048

School Name: Melrose High School

Area of Science: Biology/Physics

Project Title: Wild Fire Spread in Developed Areas



This project will model how wild fires spread and how they burn in developed areas. We will take into account brush, moisture, climate, geography, topography, housing and other human changes made to the natural environment.

We will use established models of wild fire spread and modify them to take into account how human developements affect fire movements.

We plan to develope a web site to allow individuals to download satelite photos of their home areas and apply our model to evaluate their individual fire safety hazzard potentials.
