EARSeL Forest Fire Special Interest Group Workshop

10th EARSeL Forest Fire Special Interest Group Workshop
“Sensors, Multi-sensor Integration, Large Volumes:
New opportunities and challenges in Forest Fire Research”

2-5 November 2015, Limassol, Cyprus

The subject of the 10th EARSeL Forest Fire Special Interest Group Workshop will be “Sensors, Multi-sensor integration, large volumes: New opportunities and challenges in Forest Fire Research.  The workshop will focus on the use of multi-scale sensors, including UAV, drone, aircraft, helicopter, Landsat/Sentinel, MODIS/PROBA and systematic observations through Landsat WELD and Sentinel 1/2/3 to conduct research in forest fires. 

The EARSeL Special Interest Group on Forest Fires (FF-SIG) was created in 1995, following the initiative of several researchers studying fires in Mediterranean Europe. The FF-SIG which currently represents one of the most active groups within EARSeL promotes the integration of advanced technologies and the production of satellite-derived products for the benefit of forest managers, researchers, local governments and global organisations.

In this context, the FF-SIG (since its foundation) organises workshops and promotes research through specialised publications. The nine workshops organized by the group, so far, were held in Alcalá de Henares (1995), Luso (1998), Paris (2001), Ghent (2003), Zaragoza (2005), Thessaloniki (2007), Matera (2009), Stresa (2011) and Coombe Abbey (2013). The 10th EARSel Forest Fire Workshop will take place in Limassol, Cyprus from 2 to 5 November, 2015.

These workshops resulted in outstanding progress made in forest fire research. As a result, selected papers presented in these technical meetings were included in a number of special issues of scientific journals related to forest fires and remote sensing such as the International Journal of Remote Sensing, the Remote Sensing of Environment, the Journal of Geophysical Research, the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Applied Earth Observations and Remote Sensing, the International Journal of Wildland Fire (special section), and MDPI Remote Sensing.

For the 10th EARSel Forest Fire Workshop, journal submission will be announced at a later date.
