Description

This conference will specifically address wildland fire in the Eastern US, a topic of cruicial interest to the USDA, Forest Service and Department of Interior fire managers. Although the conference will focus on the East, the scientific and technology topics have national and international implications. Topics now proposed for the conference include: 1)Remote Sensing and Modeling of Fire Occurrence, Behavior and Burned Areas 2) Modeling of Climate Change and Wildland Fire 3) Remote Sensing and Simulation Models to Assess Social, Cultural, and Economics of Fire 4) Remote Sensing and Modeling of Fire and Air Quality 5) Fire, Biodiversity, Landscapes, and Remote Sensing Applications 6) Remote Sensing and Modeling Tools for Wildland Fire in Landscapes and Watersheds 7) Remote Sensing and Modeling Applications for Wildland Fire Fuel Treatment 8) Decision Support Systems for Wildland Fiire in the Eastern States.
