Methods applied in the NPS-USGS National Burn Severity Mapping Project are maintained on the FIREMON web site as the FIREMON Landscape Assessment Methodology.
FIREMON is a Joint Fire Sciences Project, sponsored to provide fire managers and scientists from all agencies with a comprehensive set of fire effects monitoring and inventory protocols. It is developed by USFS Rocky Mountain Research Station, Missoula Fire Sciences Laboratory, the USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center, and Systems for Environmental Management. Field and office methods are described at the plant-level (e.g. mortality), at the stand-level (e.g. fuel composition, species composition), and at the landscape-level (e.g. burn severity mosaic, Landsat dNBR mapping).
