Forest Fire Occurrence in Russia and Canada: Ground, Aerial, and Satellite Measurements
Entry ID: iufro_forestfire

Abstract: Growing concern over global change has recently focused attention on

particularly if current climate change projections materialize. There
is now a recognized need for improved monitoring and documentation ... View entire text
