Diane Davies on a wildfire alert system

Diane Davies: I’m interested in ways of overcoming technology barriers and making this type of data useful and usable to a wide range of users.

Diane Davies of the University of Maryland has helped create a global fire alert system that detects wildfires from space – then sends land managers this urgent information in an email, or text message. EarthSky’s Lindsay Patterson spoke to Dr. Davies.
