Summary

These data provide on the ground estimates of burn severity as estimated by the Composite Burn Index (CBI). Data were collected between 1996 and 2018 for fires that burned during this time period. Landsat imagery was used to develop regression relationships between the Normalized Burn Ratio (NBR) and differenced NBR (dNBR).

Purpose

These data were collected between 1996 and 2018 to represent the on the ground burn severity as estimated by the Composite Burn Index (CBI). These data can be regressed against satellite estimates of burn severity (e.g. Landsat Normalized Burn Ratio) to develop regression equations.
