Experience
CEAM has a large experience in the analysis of fire weather, ecosystem responses to fires and on burned and degraded ecosystems restoration. The main focus of the group's research is to use meso-meteorological models to predict local weather conditions, especially wind, and to develop techniques for restoration of Mediterranean ecosystems according to climate conditions and site degradation. CEAM is developing a Programme on Restoration of Burned and Degraded Forests promoted and funded by the Regional Government of Valencia since 1991, carried out in close collaboration with the Regional Forest Service. V.R Vallejo has recently coordinated the EC REACTION project that built a Mediterranean database on evaluated restoration projects. The group has participated in a number of EU R+D projects related to land restoration and forest fires, such as REMECOS, DELFI, LUCIFER, REDMED, EUFIRELAB, CREOAK, GEORANGE, SPREAD, MEDRAP, REACTION, LIFE-ECOQUARRY, CIRCE and PRACTICE (in bold coordinated by V.R. Vallejo).
