I am currently involved in a major international project using satellite imagery for fire monitoring in Eastern indonesia. This project builds on activities underway in northern Australia and western Indonesia on the causes and impacts of landscape fires and extends these activities to sites in eastern Indonesia. Field sites have been established in Sumba and Flores. Fires are being monitored and mapped in these areas, and alternative fire management practices will be investigated and demonstrated. Policies relating to the use of fire in land management will be reviewed for northern Australia and Indonesia.
|I am regularly contracted to undertake satellite based fire mapping for the Top-End. This work resulted in the publication of a paper based on work done in the Kalumburu region of the east Kimberly. Patterns of landscape fire and predicted vegetation response in the North Kimberley region ofWestern Australia.|
Looking back was originally published in 1992 to present the results
of the Australian Case Study for International Space Year (1992). The
case study involved the use of satellite data to detect, interpret and
communicate changes in the landcover of the Australian continent that
occurred between 1972 and 1992.
