USDOT Wildfire

USDOT WildfireThe project goal was to create an promotional video for an addition to NASA’s wildfire response online map platform, RECOVER, that would help wildfire responders plan for potential Debris Flows. Researchers at Michigan Tech, together with the University of Arkansas and Idaho State University, have developed an addition to the RECOVER platform that will function as a map layer. This map layer indicates potential debris flow areas based on new modeling developed in our Geological Engineering department. Our video helped the team behind this new Debris Flow map layer communicate its usefulness to wildfire response groups so that they may request a Debris Flow Analysis and map layer after future wildfire events.
