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

Description

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]
