Fire Risk Mapping of Rangelands and Forests Using Remote Sensing and Keetch Byram Drought Index Techniques(Case Study: Isfahan Province, Iran)
Drought and water shortage have become major challenges in our country in recent years. An increase in drought occurrence may increase the risk of fire in forests and rangelands which can have many negative impacts on human life and environment. In recent decades, various approaches for fire risk mapping in forests and rangelands have been presented and applied to climate and Land Surface Temperature(LST) remote sensing data such as Keetch-Byram Drought Index(KBDI). Therefore, the main purpose of this research was to map the risk of fire in forests and rangelands using climate and satellite data in Isfahan province, Iran..
