Fuel characteristics play an important role in driving fire ignition and propagation; at the landscape scale fuel availability and flammability are closely related to vegetation phenology. In this view, the NDVI profiles obtained from high temporal resolution satellites, like MODIS, are an effective tool for monitoring the coarse-scale vegetation seasonal timing. The aim of this paper is twofold: our first objective consists in classifying by means of multitemporal NDVI profiles the coarse… CONTINUE READING
