GEOG Assistant Research Professor Dong (Tony) Chen was recently invited to give a talk for the Alaska Fire Science Consortium webinar series. During the talk, Dr. Chen shared two of his recent studies, “Missing burns in the high northern latitudes: The case for regionally focused burned area products,” (a recent paper published in Remote Sensing) and “Fire-vegetation interactions in Arctic tundra and their spatial variability” (a manuscript under review).  

Based at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, the Alaska Fire Science Consortium is a regional organization that provides a series of fire-related services and products. It is one of fifteen regional consortia supported by the Joint Fire Science Program.
