Forest Fire Monitoring of Shoolpaneshwar Wildlife Sanctuary, Gujarat, India using Geospatial Techniques
Forest fire mapping is essential for monitoring significant ecosystem losses. Geospatial techniques play a considerable role in the monitoring of these events across the globe. The present study observes and compares various indices like NDVI, NBR and RBR used to estimate burn severity, which can be helpful to measure vegetation loss in the study area during 2018. The study shows a strong correlation between NDVI and dNBR, and better differentiation between the burned and unburned regions using RBR to create a better forest action plan for the local state departments to combat forest fires.
