A Remote Sensing Approach To Mapping Fire Severity in South-Eastern Australia Using Sentinel-2 and Random Forest
July 22, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Australian Space Data Analysis Facility (ASDAF) is hosting a FREE event this week, exploring A Remote Sensing Approach To Mapping Fire Severity in South-Eastern Australia Using Sentinel-2 and Random Forest.
Accurate and consistent broad-scale mapping of fire severity is an important resource for fire management as well as fire-related ecological and climate change research. Remote sensing and machine learning approaches present an opportunity to enhance the accuracy and efficiency of current practices. Here we systematically test and compare reflectance and fractional cover candidate severity indices derived from Sentinel 2 satellite imagery using a random forest (RF) machine learning framework. The results indicate that fire severity can be mapped with very high accuracy using Sentinel 2 imagery and RF supervised classification.
