Bullfrog Post-Fire BAER Burn Severity Map Released
A Forest Service Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team recently remotely assessed and analyzed the burn severity of the Bullfrog Fire. An initial BARC (Burned Area Reflectance Classification) satellite imagery map was validated virtually using topography and aerial imagery to produce a non-field validated burn severity map. Burn Severity levels are Unburned/Very Low, Low, Moderate, and High. The map shows that in the Bullfrog burned area, the levels are unburned/very low (64%) or low (27%) burn severity, while 6% sustained a moderate burn severity, and 3% burned at high burn severity.
PLEASE NOTE: Attached below as “Related Information” is a PDF map for the Bullfrog Post-Fire BAER Burned Severity Assessment. The map is also posted as a JPG image under the Maps Tab, also found at: https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/maps/7191/.
