Quantitative information on the error properties of global satellite-derived burned area (BA) products is essential for evaluating the quality of these products, e.g. against modelled BA estimates. We estimate theoretical uncertainties for three widely...
This video by Heather Heward, University of Idaho, offers a short overview of the steps needed to review LANDFIRE data in the context of wildland fire and fuels management. Perform any or all of these steps to increase your ability to creatively and...
Forests fires in northern Iran have always been common, but the number of forest fires has been growing over the last decade. It is believed, but not proven, that this growth can be attributed to the increasing temperatures and droughts. In general,...
Forest managers demand reliable tools to evaluate post-fire vegetation and soil damage. In this study, we quantify wildfire damage to vegetation and soil based on the analysis of burn severity, using multitemporal and multispectral satellite data and...
This dataset provides estimates of wildfire progression, as represented by date of burning (DoB), within fire scars across Alaska and Canada for the period 2001-2015. The estimated DoB was derived using an algorithm for identifying the first fire...
With support from the NASA Applied Sciences Program, the Alaska Fire Science Consortium (AFSC; part of the International Arctic Research Center at UAF) organized an international workshop in April 2017 to advance the application of remote sensing tools...
One of the factors that shapes the Alaskan Boreal forest is the frequency in which previously burned areas re-burn, also known as the fire return interval. The Alaskan fire regime itself is subject to various climate influences one of which is...
Arizona’s Sonoran Desert is home to unique species, sites of immense cultural and historical value, and more than 5 million people. This sensitive region is also threatened by a changing fire regime, spurred by climate change, long-term drought, and...
The Yukon–Kuskokwim (YK) Delta is a region of discontinuous permafrost in the subarctic of southwestern Alaska. Many wildfires have occurred in the YK Delta between 1971–2015, impacting vegetation cover, surface soil moisture, and the active layer....
