Abstract

As a part of my Masters thesis, I have been studying spatial and temporal patterns of circumpolar Arctic tundra wildfires using large remotely sensed and modeled (MODIS active fire and MERRA climate reanalysis data) datasets that come from NASA Earth Observation Systems. I am using spatial statistics to investigate and model multiyear wildfire patterns and to ultimately build a real-time predictive model, which will estimate future wildfire scenarios and carbon emission from these fire events.
