NASA Remote Sensing for Wildfire Applications

Idaho State University GIS Training and Research Center, Pocatello, ID
Idaho State University Campus, Pocatello, ID
Date Range: 
Tuesday, October 6, 2015 to Thursday, October 8, 2015
8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

The course will provide presentations and hands-on activities about NASA remote sensing missions that are relevant to wildfire applications. The training will consist of a 3-day in-depth assessment of

  1. satellite remote sensing overview and what to expect from geospatial technologies,
  2. fire-related remote sensing platforms and products,
  3. pre-fire assessment,
  4. integration of geospatial technology in fire assessment,
  5. post-fire planning from an end-user perspective,
  6. new tools and technologies such as the RECOVER Decision support system,
  7. long-term fire monitoring, and
  8. future research needs.

This course will also include a field trip of a regional fire site and a poster session highlighting recent wildfire research. This course will provide participants with hands-on activities, exploration exercises, and breakout sessions to identify future research needs and avenues for collaborative opportunities among the wildfire management community.
