New in HOORC’s Library: Wildland Fire Danger Estimation And Mapping
The effects of wild fires are studied by researchers from various disciplines -- atmospheric chemistry, ecology and geography -- to better understand how fires relate to climate change and vegetation land cover. Wildland fire danger estimation and mapping : the role of remote sensing data, received this week in HOORC's library, describes methods of extracting information from satellite remote sensing images to assess the risk of wild fires. Fires in the Okavango Delta have been studied by Michael Heinl: his dissertation, Fire regime and vegetation response in the Okavango Delta, Botswana can also be found in HOORC's library.
