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 (RxCADRE) field campaign, we used ground, airborne and spaceborne sensors to measure fire radiative power (FRP) from whole fires, applying… 

Measurements relating fire radiative energy density and surface fuel consumption – RxCADRE 2011 and 2012

Small-scale experiments have demonstrated that fire radiative energy is linearly related to fuel combusted but such a relationship has not been shown at the landscape level of prescribed fires. This

Inferring energy incident on sensors in low-intensity surface fires from remotely sensed radiation and using it to predict tree stem injury

Remotely sensed radiation, attractive for its spatial and temporal coverage, offers a means of inferring energy deposition in fires (e.g. on soils, fuels and tree stems) but coordinated remote and

A comparison of in-situ fire energy measurements to remote sensed thermography using Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

Fire science and management are often limited by an inability to quantitatively measure and track the properties of wildland fire at their full spatial and temporal scales (Riggan et al. 2004).

Fire Detection and Fire Radiative Power in Forests and Low-Biomass Lands in Northeast Asia: MODIS versus VIIRS Fire Products

A better understanding of fire detection and FRP retrieval performance between MODIS and its successor VIIRS is contributed, providing valuable information for using those data in the study of fire regimes andFRP-based fire emission estimation.

High-resolution infrared thermography for capturing wildland fire behaviour: RxCADRE 2012

Wildland fire radiant energy emission is one of the only measurements of combustion that can be made at wide spatial extents and high temporal and spatial resolutions. Furthermore, spatially and

Direct estimation of Byram’s fire intensity from infrared remote sensing imagery

Byram’s fire intensity (IB,tot; kWm–1) is one the most important and widely accepted metrics for quantifying wildfire behaviour. Calculation of IB,tot requires measurement of fuel consumption, heat

Laboratory experiments to estimate interception of infrared radiation by tree canopies

Estimates of biomass-burning in wildfires or prescribed fires are needed to account for the production of trace gases and aerosols that enter the atmosphere during combustion. Research has

Geocorrection of Airborne Mid-Wave Infrared Imagery for Mapping Wildfires without GPS or IMU

This alternative geocorrection methodology successfully salvages an otherwise unusable dataset and can be adapted by other researchers that do not have access to accurate positional information for airborne infrared flight campaigns over wildfires.

Airborne Optical and Thermal Remote Sensing for Wildfire Detection and Monitoring

This review outlines the state of the art in direct, semi-automated and automated fire detection from both manned and unmanned aerial platforms and discusses the operational constraints and opportunities provided by these sensor systems.

Use of ordinary kriging and Gaussian conditional simulation to interpolate airborne fire radiative energy density estimates

Fire radiative energy density (FRED, J m−2) integrated from fire radiative power density (FRPD, W m−2) observations of landscape-level fires can present an undersampling problem when collected from
