The emergence of affordable unmanned aerial systems (UAS) has created new opportunities to study fire behavior and ecosystem pattern-process relationships. At Sycan Marsh Preserve, the Big Coyote Fuels Reduction Project provided a project team from the U.S. Forest Service Fire Research Lab, University of Montana and The Nature Conservancy with an opportunity to expand upon existing efforts to quantify fire intensity, behavior and effects.
