G’day, I am Stéphane Mangeon (PhD), a CERC postdoctoral fellow in the Model-Data Fusion team in CSIRO Data61. Leaving countryside France to go study in the United Kingdoms for University, I eventually received a PhD in Space and Atmospheric Physics from Imperial College London and the UK Met Office, where I built its fire module for climate models (INFERNO). I worked with the UN’s World Meteorological Organisation and the Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology (SM
Kangaroo Island - it’s about as quintessentially Australian as a placename gets. There should be no surprises then when I tell you that I’m from the University of Adelaide, South Australia. I’m completing a Master of Philosophy in Earth Sciences with a focus on paleofire and I’m excited to be able to connect with the French bushfire community, especially as I lived in France for a year in Aix-en-Provence and Grenoble. Last summer, as I’m sure you did, I watched with baited br
The Bushfire Behaviour and Management Group at the University of Melbourne aims to provide a strong scientific basis for the prediction of wildfire behaviour and the impact of wildfires in order to identify management strategies aimed at reducing the risk of damage to human values while maintaining environmental values in the landscape. To do this our work covers three primary research areas: fire behaviour; landscape flammability; and risk modelling. Fire behaviour In natura

July 5th – July 9th, 2021 Research in the field of renewable energies has greatly intensified due to decreasing fossil energy resources and an increase in greenhouse gas concentration (in particular carbon dioxide).
Throughout this online summer school, the problems linked to the collection of renewable energies (photovoltaic, wind, etc.), their transformation (hydrogen production, etc.) and their storage (supercapacitors, batteries, etc.) will be analyzed. Issues relate
