520    Scientists and managers alike need timely, cost-effective,
       and technically appropriate fire-related information to 
       develop functional strategies for the diverse fire 
       communities. "Remote Sensing Modeling and Applications to 
       Wildland Fires" addresses wildland fire management needs 
       by presenting discussions that link ecology and the 
       physical sciences from local to regional levels, views on 
       integrated decision support data for policy and decision 
       makers, new technologies and techniques, and future 
       challenges and how remote sensing might help to address 
       them. While creating awareness of wildland fire management
       and rehabilitation issues, hands-on experience in applying
       remote sensing and simulation modeling is also shared. 
       This book will be a useful reference work for researchers,
       practitioners and graduate students in the fields of fire 
       science, remote sensing and modeling applications.
