Description

From the text ... 'This special issue compilation of eight papers demonstrates the breadth of remote sensing applications on the cutting edge of fire ecology research. Remotely sensed imagery can provide objective measures of fire perimeters, burn patterns, and fire severity at large spatial and temporal scales that would be virtually impossible to characterize by other means on the ground. Remote sensing data can add value to field data for improved maps, and used in modeling studies to better understand ecological processes, to the benefit of both fire ecologists and managers.'
