Using Drones to Improve Our Understanding of Fire Behavior
Sycan Marsh Preserve ~ Oregon FLN

Notes from the Field are brief updates on activities from the Fire Learning Network, Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network, Indigenous Peoples Burning Network and Prescribed Fire Training Exchanges.
This issue gives a brief overview of how unmanned aerial systems (UAS), or drones, can be used to study fire behavior. In the fall of 2018, a Big Coyote Fuels Reduction Project burn on the Sycan Marsh Preserve hosted a team researching the use of UAS; the first paper on that research was published in the spring of 2019.
