REMAS - Visor Cartográfico
Gestión del riesgo de emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero en incendios forestales
Greenhouse gas emission risk management in forest fires
REMAS has developed a transnational emission risk model that can serve as a tool to support regional Administrations to determine greenhouse gas emission risk of their forest ecosystems on forest fire events as well as to prioritise their actions to prevent these emissions.
This model has been designed for determining potential emission risks from large forest fires over forest ecosystems, concretely over carbon stocks from the organic fraction of soils and over vegetation of key forest ecosystems in SUDOE space.
This model has been build up from the characterization, geospatial analisys and data treatment of emission risk variables obtained from each of the REMAS study areas. These variables have been determined and selected according to the greenhouse gas emission risk methodology developed in REMAS project framework (2019-2022).
The Emission risk cartography aims to provide information on variables determining emission risk and support to decision makers on wildfire management and prevention plans and strategies by providing a qualitative quantification of the most vulnerable areas with highest emission risk at a regional level.
All cartography is free access, homogenized following INSPIRE Directive and available to all public administrations and general public. Moreover, a Emission Risk Cartography Visor will be available soon in the website.
