QuickNote: Mountain Pine Beetle Effects on Wildfire Rate of Spread and Landscape Fire Risk

There is growing concern and evidence that mountain pine beetle epidemics are significantly increasing landscape-level wildfire risk. As described in this QuickNote by project lead Chris Stockdale, this project will use satelite data from BC to determine how MPB affected fire spread rate. The researchers will use these findings to model fire spread on a landscape mottled with different stages of MPB attack.
