SFE Webinar: Mapping burned areas from the Landsat archive: A new way of monitoring of fire occurrence across the United States, and a southern example for fire management applications

 

A free one and a half hour webinar from the U.S. Geological Survey, Tall Timbers Research Station, the Southern Fire Exchange, and the University of Florida.

Thursday, January 24th, 2019 1:00 - 2:30 PM ET

 

Presenter: 

Todd Hawbaker, Ph.D., US Geological Survey, Denver, CO

Casey Teske, Ph.D., Tall Timbers Research Station, Tallahassee, FL


 

Webinar Description:

Complete and accurate burned area data are needed to document patterns of fires, to quantify their drivers, and to assess the impacts on human and natural systems. Unfortunately, existing fire occurrence datasets are known to be incomplete. In response, we developed the Landsat Burned Area BA algorithm that identifies burned areas in dense time-series of Landsat data and used it to map burned areas across the conterminous United States.  This presentation will describe the Landsat Burned Area algorithm and products.  Additionally, applications using the burned area products will be covered. Tall Timbers staff are finalizing a statewide project to develop a spatial database of fire extent in Florida that will be integrated into further analyses specific to landscape conservation and monitoring. One of the outcomes of this database is to advance spatial data resolution and tracking of fire regimes in Florida. The extents of fires were derived using the Landsat Burned Area products. Spatial analyses characterizing fire history and fire regime metrics based on fires larger than 2.5 acres are currently in progress. Examples of fire management applications will be discussed.

Southern Fire Exchange

The Southern Fire Exchange is a regional wildland fire science communication program and a member of the national Fire Science Exchange Network, funded by the Joint Fire Science Program. 

Representing 11 southern states, we work with numerous partners throughout the region to increase the use of available fire science, facilitate discussions about the relevance of research results and future research needs, and connect fire managers and researchers. 

We share fire science research results and information with natural resource managers, landowners, and scientists by offering a variety of resources and events: 
  • Newsletters, fact sheets, and research briefs 
  • Webinars, live and archived for viewing at anytime 
  • Workshops and field tours throughout the Southeast
