This study investigated the potential of very-high-resolution (VHR) GeoEye images on detecting the field-measured burn severity of a forest fire that occurred in Evros (Greece) during summer 2011.  ...  To do so, we analysed the role of topographic conditions and burn severity, as measured in the field immediately after the fire (2011) and one year after (2012) using the Composite Burn Index (CBI) for  ...  Acknowledgments: This research work was conducted as part of the project "National Observatory of Forest Fires (NOFFi)" which is done in collaboration with the Greek Special Secretariat for Forests and  ...
