Preliminary estimation of forest fire danger using LANDSAT images over Baikal Lake basin forests

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Forest fires are a significant factor that affects the natural heritage of our planet - the lake Baikal basin. Moreover, often this impact is negative and causes damage to the forest areas of the region. The main condition for effective forest management and fire protection is the availability of reliable and comprehensive static and dynamic information on the state of the forest fund. The report provides a description of the methodology for preliminary analysis of the structure of the forest and assessing forest fire danger. LANDSAT images are used as primary information. One of the territories of the Baikal region is considered. LANDSAT images were used for 2015.
