Great Smoky Mountains National Park Chimney Tops 2 Fire Burn Severity


Vegetation severity data set created from the BARC image (v2) and field observations by the BAER Team. The effect of a fire on vegetative ecosystem properties, often defined by the degree of scorch, consumption, and mortality of vegetation and the projected or ultimate vegetative recovery. The vegetation burn severity of a fire depends on the fire intensity and the degree to which ­ecosystem properties are (or are not) fire ­resistant. For example, a fire of exactly the same fire line intensity might kill thin-barked trees but have little effect on thick-barked trees, or it may root-kill rather than canopy-kill trees, which would result in greater mortality than initially observed.
