Table 2 Selected factors affecting quantification of fire severity and recovery are grouped into four conditions of the methodology.

From: Ecological and Sampling Constraints on Defining Landscape Fire Severity

  Factors Relevant to Modeling Fire Severity
Conditions General Factors Fire Specific
Spatial resolution aggregation of effects
  autocorrelation patch size, contagion
Temporal site phenology fire completion
  moisture content time since fire
  sun angle, snow fire seasonality
  sampling interval  
Radiometric transmittance smoke
  available bandwidths range of burn variation
  reflectance specific bandwidth response
Geographic geo-registration ecotype properties
  topography elevation gradients
