On 15th January, Matt participated remotely in the annual WiFIRE advisory committee meeting in his capacity as WiFIRE advisory committee member. The sister project to RISER, WiFIRE is based in San Diego making excellent progress in a number of areas complementary to RISER. The meeting helped further define a number of areas for continuing collaboration with RISER, including in crowd-sourced data and in validation of fire models.
The fourth RISER PMC (project management committee) meeting will be held at EMV on 27 January. The PMC has responsibility for providing guidance and advice on strategic direction for the RISER project. Please let Matt know if you have any items you would like raised at the PMC meeting.
