Ecology One of the most important environmental issues in Europe is the expansion of wildland-urban interfaces (WUIs) and how this trend may affect the occurrence of wildfires.

Land use changes, the abandonment of farmland, and reduced grazing has led to an increase in forested areas with an accumulation and continuity of surface fuels available for combustion.

The level of threat a fire represents to society is thus strongly influenced by the characteristics of fire behavior. For instance, a fire with an FL of m in any context cannot produce intensities that overwhelm the capacity of suppression, whereas the radiant heat of flames that leap m above the tree line, as in Australia incan Author: Fantina Tedim, Fantina Tedim, Vittorio Leone, Michael Coughlan, Christophe Bouillon, Gavriil Xanthop.

Fire behavior characteristics describe how a fire will burn, where it burns, how fast it moves, how much heat it releases, and how much fuel it consumes.

In the rural-urban fringe of North America, the main concerns are fire behavior potential, at-risk human values, and the infrastructure to support firefighting capabilities.
