Andrew Pierce - Mapping Fuels at Landscape Scales by Integrating Plot-level and Multi-Spectral Data

Slideshow presentation by Dr. Andrew Pierce at the 2011 PFX Workshop on fuel mapping using plot-leveland multi-spectral data. He uses a sample site at Pohakuloa Training Area as a demonstration of the modeling technique. Goals of his work include: using "surface and canopy fuels maps to predict expected fire behaviors for PTA under current and future climate scenarios (warmer and/or drier)" and combining "fuels maps with threatened & endangered species locations to prioritize fuel and optimally locate treatments."
