Fire Patchiness

fire is not fire Fire is not fire. While some low intensity fires have very little impact on flora and fauna, hight intensity fires often lead to high mortality rates and large greenhouse-gas emissions. maitec's experimental sub-pixel fire patchiness maps capture the different impact different fires have on the vegetation. The product provides an estimate of the fraction of a pixel (250m) burnt. It is fully implemented Australia wide and is currently undergoing validation.
