Annual Disturbance

LANDFIRE (LF) Annual Disturbance (Dist) products depict where change occurred on the landscape, both spatially and temporally, on an annual basis through 2016. These products inform model vegetation transitions to provide updates to LF vegetation, fuel, and fire regime products.

Disturbance products are developed by combining fire program data (e.g., Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity (MTBS)), cooperator-provided field data via the LF Events Geodatabase, and change detection methods using Landsat imagery.

Annual Disturbance products are attributed with disturbance year, type, and severity. These products are applicable in several areas of research and management such as landscape change, habitat gain/loss, carbon stock change, vegetation restoration, and more.
