Differential equation models of wildfire suppression allocation
MetadataShow full item record
(CHAPTER 1) Current policy calls for efficient and effective wildfire response, which requires an understanding of the system's complexity. Data visualization often provides key insight to initiate any normative modeling effort to reveal best practices when implementing the policy. This chapter outlines a procedure to make MATLAB structures from a resource tracking database. We prepared a wildfire suppression allocation database, built an animation and graphical user interface, and initiated our investigation of differential equations using GIS maps and phase plane as descriptive aides.
