What are the effects of wildfires on the ecosystem, the atmosphere, and human health? Through remote sensing, Nancy French, senior research scientist at the Michigan Tech Research Institute, connects wildfire fuel to how fires behave and what ends up in the smoke.

French is available as an expert to speak to:

  • Characterizing spatial and temporal patterns of wildland fuels, fire, and carbon emissions from fire.
  • Remote sensing of wildland fire and its effects.
  • Fire emissions and health.
