Dr Bryan Hally

Dr Bryan Hally’s project developed new ways to provide quantitative analysis of the effectiveness of prescribed burning using terrestrial and airborne LiDAR techniques. Using a series of case studies of varying forest types, Bryan compared his measurements to existing vegetation assessment techniques to provide objective analysis of burn effectiveness. He then developed a model
for the simulation of active fire landscapes which will validate a range of satellite remote sensors.

Bryan is currently working in the Geospatial Sciences department at RMIT University where he is a researcher, assisting in forest fuel attribution and forest structure projects. This included research on the CRC’s
Fire surveillance and hazard mapping project.

His thesis is available here.

Student project

Satellite remote sensing of active fire is increasingly being utilised to aid in the location and evaluation of fire threats to people and property. This study is developing a model for the simulation of active fire landscapes, which will be used to validate the fire products of a range of satellite remote sensors. Sources of attenuation of fire signal are also being investigated, along with the adaption of existing fire products to new satellite sensors for Australia.
