Welcome to EastFIRE Lab
EastFIRE Laboratory is an advanced research Lab focusing on providing timely, accurate, and cost effective, and technically appropriate fire related information to the broad and diverse fire communities of the eastern United States. EastFIRE recognizes the communities of the eastern United States. EastFIRE recognizes the dynamic nature of challenges facing fire interests in the east, including demographic and land use changes, and the importance of managers at the federal, state, and local levels. Additional concerns over climate change, air pollution, and invasive species are acknowledged components of a growing mix of concerns.
Our knowledge engineered outputs provide useful, timely and geographically specific information to federal, state and local fire managers and other users. EastFIRE uses continuous satellite measurements to:
(1) generate near real time fire related products;
(2) deliver the data products appropriately tuned to specific users;
(3) post fire related information for interested public;
(4) provide support to federal, state and local decision makers.
As an integral part of an internationally renowned university, EastFIRE also educates an outstanding cadre of students to address future problems while providing training for today's wildland fire professionals in the eastern states.
