Fire Stakeholder Virtual Workshop

 

This workshop was designed for members of the Fire Sector community who use NOAA's remote sensing data in the fields of fire preparedness, fire response, fire damage assessment, and fire impacts to critical infrastructure.

This workshop gathered feedback on NOAA's environmental satellite data products through structured discussion. These user needs will be used to inform the remote sensing capabilities of NOAA's next generation of environmental satellites.
