Multispectral Satellite Applications: Monitoring the Wildland Fire Cycle, 2nd Edition: This lesson describes current and future satellite sensors and products used for monitoring the fire cycle. Product information is presented in the context of the fire lifecycle: from assessing the pre- and post-fire environment to detecting and monitoring active fires, smoke, and aerosols. This updated version of the lesson includes new information on GOES-R fire-related applications.
Satellite Feature Identification: Ring of Fire: Introduces forecasters to the potentially damaging convection that can develop in conjunction with blocking high pressure centers and examines how to identify it from a water vapor imagery perspective. This module is also available in French and Spanish.
GOES-R Fire Characterization, Land Surface Temperature and Snow: This module is part of the GOES-R Satellite Foundational Course and covers GOES-R Series products for fire detection, land surface temperature and snow cover.
