On September 8, 2013, 3,111 acres around the summit of Mt. Diablo went up in flames. While the charred landcape can appear alarming, fire is actually a natural part of the mountain's ecology, and many plants actually require fire to reproduce. We're trying to monitor how the landscape is changing and recovering after the fire by taking pictures from fixed locations for 1 year after the fire.
Interested in the data we're collecting? Here's the Google Spreadsheet.
We're kind of getting a lot of traffic as of 2014-05-21 and we're exceeding the limits of the APIs we use to access these images, so some of these slideshows might not work. Thanks for all the attention, tnough!
