Evaluate the feasibility and suitability of using information from freely available satellite data to provide a spatial explict estimate of forest fuels which could potentially burn, to be included in the national IGNIS platform. Specifically, the project should provide a simplified Swiss-wide forest fire-related characterization of forest fuel types (i.e., forests with similar pyrological characteristics) and calculate and analyse drought and fire-related remote sensing indices (and their combination) derived from multispectral Landsat and Sentinel-2 data.
