After the Mangum Fire - GIS tools used in Post Fire Analysis

Details


After the Mangum Fire - GIS tools used in Post Fire Analysis

Presenter: Mark Christiano

The Mangum Fire started on June 8th, 2020, and grew to over 70,000 acres becoming the largest wildland fire in the history of the Kaibab National Forest. During this presentation, we will review the spread of the fire and its containment. Then we will look at the GIS process used to assess the severity of the fire by the Burn Area Emergency Response (BAER) team days after the fire and the months that follow. We will cover how sentinel satellite data is used to create the Burned Area Reflectance Classification (BARC) and the fieldwork needed to produce the Soil Burn Severity (SBS) Map. During the fieldwork, the BAER team utilized ArcCollector to assess the damage of the fire.  We will also look at how multiple vegetation types affected the BARC. Finally, we will look at RAVG (Rapid Assessment of Vegetation Condition After Wildfire) and the development of elevation point clouds using high-resolution imagery and comparing that data to pre-fire LiDAR data. 

Takeaway: An insight into the post-fire GIS world and how those tools inform management decisions.

Who should attend: This presentation should appeal to those interested in fire, remote sensing, field collection, and LiDAR.  We will be looking at the tools available days and months after a fire to assess the damage.
