Interviews and Fire Updates with WIFIRE's Dr. Ilkay Altintas at UCSD and Wildfire Tracker Frank Schwartz

Listen Now to Dr. Future Show 10.17.2017

Given the intensity and severity of today’s wildfire’s, what high tech tools do our firefighters have at their disposal for becoming aware of these events?  We interview Dr. Illkay Altintas, one of the creators of the highly touted WIFIRE network, using a multitude of sensors and human input on the ground combined with NASA satellite info for not just showing the severity of a fire but also predictions of how the fire will progress into the future. 

We also talk with Frank Schwartz, an experienced firetracker who uses WIFIRE and Google Earth tools for seeing what’s happening with the latest fires, such as those we have experienced in Santa Rosa and the Santa Cruz Mountain areas.
