The purpose of the fire phase of the Smoke Clouds and Radiation (SCAR) experiments is to develop a technique for the quantitative remote sensing of fires and fire emissions. The first of the three fire experiments occurred in 1994 in California and the...

Emissions of atmospheric pollutants from vegetation fires can greatly affect local and regional air quality. The near real-time information on the magnitude of fires, the amount of pollutants emitted, and their impact on air quality is critical to fire...

Fuels maps are a fundamental part of fire management activities such as prescribed fire planning, suppression strategies, smoke management, and fire effects. The constraints imposed by fiscal and human resources make it desirable to have a method that...

After the extended fire and smoke-haze episode of 1997-98 in South East Asia and other regions of the world a series of international activities were initiated to address national and international problems arising from fire and smoke pollution. Most...

Understanding the trade-off between short-term and long-term consequences of fire impacts on ecosystems is needed before a comprehensive fuels management program can be implemented nationally. We are comparing three vegetation models that may be used...

One of the main problems is the strategic and operative prediction of wildland fire risks in Siberia. It requires the elaboration of a geoinformation expert system to predict emergency situations causing large wildland fires. The process for developing...

In 1988, nearly half a million hectares of forest burned in the Greater Yellowstone Area. Six years later, the burned areas were still visible in the dual-polarization radar images acquired by the Spaceborne Imaging Radar C (SIR-C) at both C- (5.6 cm...
