UBC researchers create wildfire early warning system

Various media outlets reported on a new wildfire early warning system developed by UBC researchers.

The system uses satellite imagery to track the growth of a tract of forest and then predict when and where fires caused by humans are most likely to occur.

Stories appeared on Radio-Canada International, CBC Vancouver, CBC Radio Daybreak South (segment from 02:24 to 08:50) and Penticton Western News.
