This talk presents the FIREFLY data-driven wildfire simulator capable of forecasting wildfire spread behavior over complex terrain topography. The fire propagation is represented by time-evolving two-dimensional fronts along the horizontal plane in order to remain consistent with the formulation of the PE-/SE-based EnKF algorithms that were initially developed for flat terrain configuration.
