This project seeks to (1) optimize the use of earth observing systems for active fire monitoring by exploring issues of scale, accuracy and reliability, and (2) to improve the mapping and estimation of post-fire severity and fuel change through empirical remote sensing observations.
Understanding the utility of thermal remote sensing systems for active fire detection and monitoring. Exploring issues of scale, accuracy and reliability through simulations and field validation.
In the last decade A range of sensing technologies, techniques and platforms have emerged to capture 3D structural information. This project explores these systems as alternative quantitative solutions to traditional fuel hazard and fire severity evaluations.
Active fires are inscreasingly being identified using satellite remote sensing to determine their size and severity. Verifying the information derived from the wide variety of different sensors and their associated fire algorithms can be a challenging task.
Current methods of fire detection using remote sensing rely on contextual algorithms to characterise fire.
