Research to Operations (R2O) Workshop: Using ABoVE Data in Fire and Resource Management

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 14 May 2020 to 15 May 2020

Where: University of Alaska Fairbanks

Summary

The Alaska Fire Science Consortium is working with the NASA Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) to organize a hands-on workshop on using their data and products in operational and decision-making settings. The workshop will be coordinated with the 6th ABoVE Science Team Meeting in Fairbanks, May 11-14, 2020, with the workshop starting after lunch on Thursday, May 14, and continuing all day Friday, May 15. Managers are welcome to attend the Science Team Meeting as well.

This will be a great opportunity for researchers and managers to work directly together to follow up on the progress made by the 2017 AFSC remote sensing workshop and its report and explore the use of promising research products in a management context. ABoVE has a helpful online web portal to its data products. The ABoVE domain includes most of Alaska and western Canada, and we hope that the workshop will include our Canadian colleagues.

Please let Alison York (ayork [at] alaska.edu) know if you are interested in participating, and we will share more information as we have it.
