Chathura Wickramasinghe

Chathura’s study is focused on utilising the multi-resolution and high frequency data from the Advanced Himawari Imager to develop new algorithms for fire line mapping and fire intensity calculation. Chathura’s research proposes two algorithms 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.
