Abstract: This paper presents the results of the fire danger component of the Spread project. A GIS database covering all the EUMed countries (Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece and Southern France) was developed. The fire danger assessment system included an estimation of fuel moisture content derived from satellite data (live fuels) and meteorological variables (dead fuels), as well as an estimation of the historical patterns of human-caused fires, and the fire propagation potential, generated from fire-behaviour simulation programs.
