Influence of fuel structure derived from terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) on wildfire severity in logged forests

Wilson, Nick; Bradstock, Ross A.; Bedward, Michael

Description

Context: Logging and wildfire can reduce the height of the forest canopy and the distance to the understorey vegetation below. These conditions may increase the likelihood of high severity wildfire (canopy scorch or consumption), which may explain the greater prevalence of high severity wildfire in some recently logged or burnt forests. However, the effects of these structural characteristics on wildfire severity have not clearly been demonstrated. Objectives: We aimed to assess how the...[Show more]
