Fire, Hydrology, and Soils along the Mangrove Ecotone within the Greater Everglades Ecosystem
Entry ID: USGS_SOFIA_FireHydroSoils


Summary
Abstract: Fire in the south Florida landscape has historically been influential in shaping the ecosystem. The link between hydrology, soil formation, and fire is a critical complex component in the persistence of the biotic components of the Everglades (Smith et al 2003, Beckage 2005). As a result, Everglades National Park has been at the forefront of NPS fire policy development since the inception of the ... View entire text

Purpose: Project objectives: Update Everglades National Park (ENP)/Big Cypress National Preserve (BCNP) fire history geodatabase to 2011 to both expand data available for project analysis and provide increased time-line of data for development and testing of remote sensing methods. Enhance on-going development and evaluation of remote sensing methods for mapping vegetation characteristics and monitoring ... View entire text
