BARC Ordered for Newman Fire

Newman Fire BAER Info Burned Area Emergency Response
News – 8/1/2019

The BAER assessment team has ordered a Burned Area Reflectance Classification (BARC) map which is a satellite derived image comparing pre and post fire conditions. The BARC map is then validated by BAER team field surveys to assess watershed conditions and watershed response to the wildfire. Through these field verifications the BAER team will generate a “Soil Burn Severity” map.
