About
Dr Marta Yebra

Dr Marta Yebra is a Senior Scientist at the Centre for Water and Landscape Dynamics (Fenner School of Environment and Society) with a focus on using remote sensing data to monitor, quantify and forecast natural resources, natural hazards, and landscape function and health at local, regional and global scales. 

In 2017, Dr Yebra was awarded the prestigious Max Day Environmental Science Fellowship from the Australian Academy of Science. She was also awarded the CSIRO Pyne-Scott Career Award in 2013. 

Marta is an Associate editor for Remote Sensing of Environment (Elsevier), highest ranked journal in Earth observation for environmental applications (impact factor 6.265).

Project leadership

This project uses cutting-edge technology and imagery to produce spatial information on fire hazard and impacts needed by planners, land managers and emergency services to manage fire at landscape scales. The team works closely with agencies to better understand their procedures and information needs, comparing these with the spatial data and mapping methods that are readily available, and developing the next generation of mapping technologies to help them prepare and respond to bushfires.
