There are several satellite-derived data relevant to forest fuel structure and moisture content but for which the utility for fire applications has not yet been assessed. Examples include observations from satellite Light Detection And Ranging (ICESat/GLAS), radar (ALOS PALSAR, ASAR GM) and optical (MODIS, Landsat) observations and derived products. This project will evaluate some of these data sources in terms of relevance, suitability for fire management, and operational readiness.
