CWR Presents: : Satellite Remote Sensing of Fire Other events...
Fire stick farming of hunter-gathers preceded the development of agriculture. Fire continues to be a major land management technique and contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. In the last two decades satellites have provided at regional and global scales unprecedented amounts of data on active fires and burnt areas. Most anthropomorphic in origin, some from lightening.

Dr Richard Smith will present data on the satellite monitoring of fire in the agricultural areas of southern Australia, the Tropical Savannas of northern Australia and the Tropical Rainforests of Indonesia. He will discuss their application to the abatement of greenhouse gas emissions.
