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]

Modelling Fire Ignition Probability from Satellite Estimates of Live Fuel Moisture Content
Pages: 77-97
DOI: 10.4996/fireecology.0801077

Biomass burning has critical ecological and social impacts.  Recent changes in climate patterns and land use have involved alterations of traditional fire regimes, which have increased the negative impacts of fire.  Live Fuel Moisture Content (LFMC) has proven to be one of the main factors related to fire risk, as it affects fire ignition and fire behavior, and therefore it is an essential indicator for fire risk assessment.  [Read More]
