Fire Detection and Growth Monitoring a Multitemporal Technique on AVHRR Mid-Infrared and Thermal Channels Using

  title={Fire Detection and Growth Monitoring a Multitemporal Technique on AVHRR Mid-Infrared and Thermal Channels Using},
  author={D. Pozo and J. F.R. and Olmo and Lucas Alados-Arboledas},
A technique has been developed to detect and map fire growth by using a multitemporal multispectral analysis of AVHRR images. The application of this technique allows fire growth nwnitoring. The technique is mainly based on comparison of brightness temperature differences and AVHRR Channels 3 and 4 for successive images. It provides a rapid evaluation of the area affected by the fire but suppresses the ambiguous thermal signal produced by nonvegetated terrain. It has been applied to a set of… CONTINUE READING
