Monitoring Trends in Burn Severity (MTBS) is a multi-year, interagency project designed to consistently map the location, extent and associated burn severity of large fires occurring on all lands of the United States from 1984 to present. The suite of mapping, data and analysis products facilitated by the project are derived from satellite data using image processing and analysis techniques established by the USGS and USFS.
