About Episode 95

Earth-observing satellites help us detect, monitor, and manage large forest fires. How does data from NASA space-based assets or the Canadian Space Agency’s WildFireSat program improve our capabilities to fight wildfires, and what else could be done? Join CSPS’s David Eccles as he talks to experts Joshua Johnston, PhD (Forest Fire Research Scientist, Canadian Forest Service), Everett Hinkley (National Remote Sensing Program Manager, US Forest Service), and Dr. Dee Pack (Director Remote Sensing Dept, Aerospace).
