Much more than fire

As part of the exhibition on climate change "Facing change, let's change  - Ante el cambio, cambiemos" in the City of Arts and Sciences, UV-CIDE has prepared a panel containing this interesting information:

"Did you know that the soil and vegetation of our forests are the major carbon reservoirs? During a forest fire, a large part of this carbon is released into the atmosphere again and contributes to climate change. 

The Department of Environmental Quality and Soil at the Desertification Research Centre-CIDE, (Spanish National Research Countril (CSIC), University of Valencia and Generalitat Valenciana), collaborates in the development of new methodolgoies and tools to reduce and predict the risk of emissions due to forest fires by means of the "REMAS" project.
