Dartmoor Fire 2

Some impacts of last week’s Dartmoor fire are beginning to emerge. I haven’t been there yet but some academics and fire experts have.

Firstly – this estimate of the extent of the fire was published yesterday

And then these series of images appear on Andy Elliot’s twitter feed. Note the calculation of the area via ground truthing!

I’m looking forward at some point to having a look too, but first indications appear to suggest that the peat and Sphagna have not been detrimentally impacted.
