Topics included

This session focuses upon remote sensing and modeling of wildland fire. It includes techniques and science for determining fire location, size, duration, and intensity. Also included are remote sensing and modeling tools for fuel condition assessments immediately preceding and after fires. In the session, new and existing modeling and remote sensing approaches for fire danger and fire behavior will be explored, along with meteorological considerations for fire management associated with these topics. Finally the session will address Improving fire danger and behavior indices for the eastern states.
