Remote Sensing

Remote sensing is mainly used for burned area assessment and treatment monitoring, and the burn severity assessment is the primary tool. The USDA Forest Service Remote Sensing Applications Center (RSAC) and the U.S. Geological Survey EROS Data Center have teamed up to provide rapid delivery of satellite imagery, Burned Area Reflectance Classifications (BARC), and other geospatial data for Forest Service and DOI BAER incidents.

The contact for BAER incident imagery is RSAC. The Image Collection Checklist is a useful tool for acquiring remote sensing data.

The following are additional post fire remote sensing information.
