Role
CSIC will contribute to Modules 1 and 2 working at two different spatial scales (Euro-Mediterranean and local). For this scales CSIC will work in the characterization and analysis of fire regimens using fire statistics and remote sensing data (Task 1.1.1. and 1.1.3.), the compilation and analysis (standardization and spatial mapping) of socio-economic data (Task 1.1.2), and the analysis of the interactions between socio-economic factors and the fire regime (Task 1.1.4. and 1.1.5.) and his relative influence in fire occurrence (WP 1.3). In Module 2 CSIC will participate in WP 2.1 applying predictive models to simulate future change scenarios in relation with anthropogenic factors and in WP 2.2 analyzing potential impacts of change scenarios simulated in WP 2.1 on fire risk conditions within our local study area. CSIC will also contribute to data and management activities in Module 4 and will be leader of WP 1.3.

Experience
The CSIC team has a long experience in environmental applications of remote sensing as well as in the interactions of society with the geographic environment. CSIC have been involved in several European (MINERVE, MEGAFIRES, INFLAME, FUEGO, SPREAD and EUFIRELAB), USA-NASA, national and regional projects since 1992. Our activity has been related to burnt area mapping using remote sensing data at global and local scales and socio-economic analysis of forest fire risk. Predictive models of fire occurrence associated to human activity and the analysis of population attitude towards fire.
