Forest Fire susceptibility index for assessing the history of fire occurrences in the indigenous land of Kraholândia, Brazil.pdf

The aim of this study was to examine the major factors influencing the occurrence of fires by analyzing the frequency ratio (FR) of areas with the greatest occurrence of prescribed burning and wildfire and to generate the susceptibility map of these occurrences for the Indigenous Territory of Kraholândia (Tocantins state), Brazil. A supervised classification method was apply using the Mahalanobis algorithm, and the fire scars were delimited from 2003 to 2014 based on images obtained from the Landsat-5, CBERS-2, ResourceSat-1, and Landsat-8 satellites. The higher recurrence fire class was using as a reference to assess the following variables: topography; type of land use; soil classification; and distances from human settlement, roads, and waterways. The FR of prescribed burning or wildfire occurrences was determined for each variable and a subsequent map for all the variables was create wiht the FR value of the sum of each pixel was denoted as the fire susceptibility index (FSI).
