This study is focused on utilising the multi-resolution and high frequency data from Advanced Himawari Imager to develop new algorithms for fire line mapping and fire intensity calculation. Two algorithms are proposed for fire line mapping and fire radiant energy: calculations are improved by using accurate fire area calculation and correcting for radiant heat from smouldering areas.

The algorithms developed are expected to provide  near  real  time  mapping  of  fire  at  500m  resolution  and  accurate calculation of  fire  intensity.    This  will  be  highly useful to  effectively execute bushfire control measures as well as input data for bushfire prediction models.
