Develop a multistage stochastic program with recourse for scheduling prescribed burning based fuel treatments with consideration of future wildland fires and fire suppressions
In this study, I present a multistage stochastic linear program with recourse for scheduling prescribed burning based fuel treatments under the influences of random future windland fires and fire suppressions across multiple planning periods. Prescribed burning decreases future wildfire’s spread rate and intensity. Future wildfire uncertainties are characterized by sequences of independent and identical (i.i.d.) fire samples across the entire planning horizon. Each simulated sample fire ignites at a random location and spreads for a random duration under the influence of a randomly selected wind ...
