FFS Research Chemist Wei Min Hao, Missoula, presented the spatial and temporal variability of burned areas in Northern Eurasia from 2002 to 2013 at the 36th International Symposium on Remote Sensing of the Environment in Berlin, Germany. This knowledge is essential for understanding the impacts of climate on fire activity in high latitude ecosystems. It is also critical for studying the impacts of fire emissions on the acceleration of ice melting in the Arctic. This project is an effort the FFS Smoke Emission and Dispersion Team. Members include FFS Physical Scientist Bryce Nordgren, Geospatial Architect Alex Petkov, GIS Specialist Rachel Corley, Cooperator Robin Silverstein, and Research Physical Scientist Shawn Urbanski, Missoula. Forest Service R&D, NASA, and the State Department also supported this project.
