Paper Abstract

We propose a novel model for the fire evolution, applicable to its spread in mountains, with low-height fuel. Fire propagates along contours of equal elevation on steep terrains. The wind outside the mountain does not conserve on the inside slopes at fuel height. The local wind depends on micro-climatic environment, influenced additionally by the fire itself.
