Development of a synthetic record of fire probability and proportion of late fires from simulated growth of ground stratum and annual rainfall in the Australian tropical savanna zone

Hill, Michael John; Roxburgh, Stephen; Carter, John O; Barrett, Damian J


In this study, we sought to address the issue of how to derive an extended synthetic record of fire incidence and timing at regional scale that would be representative of a short remotely-sensed calibration record. We used annual rainfall and simulated annual ground stratum growth to develop multiple regression relationships for prediction of annual fire probability and proportion of late (August-November) fires from AVHRR NDVI fire footprint data across Australian tropical savannas....[Show more]
