a r t i c l e i n f o The use of active fire detections for direct burned area mapping has been limited by the coarse spatial resolution and long revisit cycles of previous sensors. However, the recently developed VIIRS 375 m active fire detection product offers enhanced spatial resolution and temporal revisit cycle, and high sensitivity to small active(More)

Characterising radiation from wildland fires is an important focus of fire science because radiation relates directly to the combustion process and can be measured across a wide range of spatial extents and resolutions. As part of a more comprehensive set of measurements collected during the 2012 Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research(More)
Weather affects wildland fires at scales from multiseasonal precipitation patterns and anomalies, through synoptic and mesoscale weather patterns, to convective scale motions including fire-induced winds. This work analyzed the first day's growth of the 2012 High Park fire, which occurred in Colorado's Front Range during widespread drought and an unseasonal(More)
