Fire propagation is mainly influenced by three elements: slope of the terrain, vegetation, and wind. The most dangerous fires events occur with strong wind conditions. Even small differences in wind field predictions can imply relevant variations in burned areas; therefore, particular attention should be dedicated to feed the fire model with reliable wind field information.
