Modelling and mapping Invasive species of forest insects, diseases and plants have threatened Canada’s forested areas and urban environments for well over a century.

Pests such as chestnut blight and Dutch Elm Disease, have had severe impacts on certain native Canadian tree species, in some cases almost eliminating them. In computational science, wildfire modeling is concerned with numerical simulation of wildland fires in order to understand and predict fire behavior.

Wildfire modeling can ultimately aid wildland fire suppression, namely increase safety of firefighters and the public, reduce risk, and minimize damage. Wildfire modeling can also aid in protecting ecosystems, watersheds, and air quality.
