Webinar - LANDFIRE: The Biophysical Settings and Historic Fire Regimes of the North Atlantic

Presenter: Randy Swaty, The Nature Conservancy - LANDFIRE team

  • March 16th, 2016 12PM ET   

LANDFIRE is a multi-partner programed aimed at characterizing vegetation, fire and fuel characteristics for the United States.  Many of the datasets build upon one another, making them easy to work with and adapt for local use.  In this webinar, Randy Swaty of The Nature Conservancy’s LANDFIRE team will explore the pre-settlement vegetation and fire regimes of the Northeastern U.S. as modeled and mapped by LANDFIRE.  This work is enabled by the Biophysical Settings models and descriptions, which Randy will describe.  Also, there will be a “call to action” as LANDFIRE is aiming to update and improve these bundles over the next year.
