Impact of Wildfires

Watch the Recording

Wildfires can have a huge impact on an area, but how is this determined? Burn Severity maps are being used to categorize impacts of fire on soils and vegetation over large and rugged landscapes using remote sensing techniques. These maps can be made available at a relatively low-cost to help determine the best monitoring and recovery approaches.  In this webinar, we discuss the practicality of burn severity maps, their limitations, and present some preliminary results from burn severity mapping and vegetation recovery in the Davis Mountains, Texas.
