NASA database will help predict extreme fire events
Today’s Video of the Day from NASA Goddard features an interview with research scientist Robert Field as he describes the agency’s newest fire monitoring system, the Global Fire Weather Database (GFWED).
GFWED will be the first consistent dataset for use by researchers and land managers around the world. The system will utilize different satellites to provide critical information on rainfall, temperature, and land cover that can help experts identify the conditions that drive extreme fire events.
