Simulation Approaches for Burn Severity Estimation Using Remotely Sensed Images
Pages: 129-150
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0301129

Traditional field-based methods for estimating burn severity are time-consuming, labour intensive and normally limited in spatial extent. Remotely sensed data provide a means to estimate severity levels across large areas, but it is critical to understand the causes of variability in spectral response with variations in burn severity. Since experimental measurements over a range of burn severities are difficult to obtain, the simulation tools provided by radiative transfer models (RTM) offer a promising alternative to better understand factors affecting burn severity reflectances.  [Read More]

Monitoring Live Fuel Moisture Using Soil Moisture and Remote Sensing Proxies
Pages: 71-87
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0803071

Live fuel moisture (LFM) is an important fuel property controlling fuel ignition and fire propagation. LFM varies seasonally, and is controlled by precipitation, soil moisture, evapotranspiration, and plant physiology.  [Read More]
