Fire History and Regrowth from PolSAR and InSAR Data

Project Description:

This project will be looking a fire scars in the Fairbanks, Alaska area and will evaluate the benefit of PolSAR and InSAR data for evaluating vegetation type and vegetation regrowth for these scars. Validation information for SAR-derived data may be available through the LANDFIRE and Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity (MTBS) programs of USGS. SAR data will include ALOS PALSAR and Sentinel-1.
