Estimation of dry matter content in leaves using normalized indexes and PROSPECT model inversion
This work applies remote sensing techniques to estimate dry matter (DM) content in tree leaves. Two methods were used to estimate DM content: a normalized index obtained from the radiative transferExpand

Conversion of fuel moisture content values to ignition potential for integrated fire danger assessment
Fuel moisture content (FMC) estimation is a critical part of any fire danger rating system, since fuel water status is determinant in fire ignition and fire propagation. However, FMC alone does notExpand

Integrating geospatial information into fire risk assessment
Fire risk assessment should take into account the most relevant components associated to fire occurrence. To estimate when and where the fire will produce undesired effects, we need to model both (a)Expand

Estimation of dead fuel moisture content from meteorological data in Mediterranean areas. Applications in fire danger assessment
The estimation of moisture content of dead fuels is a critical variable in fire danger assessment since it is strongly related to fire ignition and fire spread potential. This study evaluates theExpand

Dead fuel moisture estimation with MSG-SEVIRI data. Retrieval of meteorological data for the calculation of the equilibrium moisture content
In this study we propose to use remote sensing data to estimate hourly meteorological data and then assess the moisture content of dead fuels. Three different models to estimate the equilibriumExpand
