The Prescribed Fire Combustion and Atmospheric Dynamics Research Experiment (RxCADRE) was designed to collect atmospheric, fuels, fire behavior, energy balance, emissions, and fire effects data to evaluate and advance fire models and further our understanding of fire science questions. This data package contains five manually georectified but radiometrically uncalibrated, and sometimes saturated, long wave infrared (LWIR) image mosaics collected in 2008 with the WASP-Lite (Wildfire Airborne Sensor Program) sensor as part of the RxCADRE project in longleaf pine (Pinus palustrus) ecosystems of the southeastern USA. Images were obtained for five large operational surface fires conducted in 2008. Three of the fires (Dubignon East, North Boundary, Turkey Woods) were at the Joseph Jones Ecological Research Center at Ichauway near Camila, Georgia. The other two fires (307B and 608A) were at Eglin Air Force Base near Valparaiso, Florida.
