This report discusses a research effort to determine the utility of remotely sensed data to delineate a forest fire history for Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks. Research was supported by the National Park Service and the Northern Rocky Mountain Parks Studies Cooperative Program. We are grateful for the cooperation and assistance given us by Dr. Don Despain and other personnel of the National Park Service who provided data and logistical support for this research. We also thank Dr. Dennis Knight and Mr. Bill Romme of the Department of Botany, University of Wyoming, for their assistance in gathering field data essential for evaluation of the remote sensing techniques.
