Aug. 12: Asner writes: “For those interested in state-of-the-art ecosystem fire prediction, go to: http://hawaiifire.stanford.edu to see our new fire risk tool. There, you can click on any place on the Big Island and get a 6-year history of vegetation fire risk conditions. Or you can slide the toolbar and see what NASA MODIS coverage, which feeds into our fire risk algorithm, can provide on a regular basis. This is a prototype that could be expanded worldwide in the future.”
