What is a BARC?

Three Rivers Post-Fire BAER Burned Area Emergency Response
Announcements – 5/17/2021

The BAER Team is currently working on the Burned Area Reflectance Classification (BARC)

A Burned Area Reflectance Classification (BARC) is a satellite-derived data layer of post-fire vegetation condition. The BARC has four classes: high, moderate, low, and unburned. This product is used as an input to the soil burn severity map produced by the Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) teams.
