17 August 1998 Forest fire detection in East Siberia forests using AVHRR/NOAA data
Author Affiliations +
During the fire-hazardous seasons 1995-1996, work was done to determine the efficiency in the use of the AVHRR/NOAA data to detect forest fires on East Siberia's territory. Promising findings of these activities were instrumental in setting up a space monitoring system for forest fires and integrating it into a common system for forest fire control. An algorithm was developed for detecting forest fires, which shows a reasonably good performance on Siberia's territory.
