We can follow the dynamics of climate change to monitor infrastructures and build early warning systems

Interview of Kai Fürstenberg, Projectleader Institut der Feuerwehr NRW, Münster, Germany

Season 1, episode 55
7 min / Published

The focus of my current project is to establish an early warning system that provides information on vegetation and wild fire dangers around traffic infrastructures like train tracks or roads but also in the forest and agriculture areas. The benefit of the European Union Copernicus satellites and infrastructure is that we get high temporal and spatial resolve data that enables us to find out which vegetation is in areas endangered by wild fires with a resolution of 10x10 meters. We can also provide information where active wild fires may be moving towards.
