Three Parks Savanna Fire-effects Plot Network: Plot-based Fire Severity Monitoring, Northern Territory, Australia, 1994-2016

Abstract: This data package comprises fire severity scores from Kakadu, Litchfield and Nitmiluk from 1994 onwards. A total of 220 permanent monitoring plots (40 m x 20 m) were established across three parks (Kakadu, Litchfield and Nitmiluk National Parks) in 1994-1995 to monitor biotic change. Of these, 133 plots are located in Kakadu, 41 plots are located in Litchfield and 46 plots are located in Nitmuluk. These sample a variety of landform and vegetation type/habitat conditions. A substantial proportion of plots were positioned deliberately at sites likely to reveal environmental dynamics, especially at ecotones and in patches of fire-sensitive vegetation (for example, stands of Callitris and sandstone heaths). In addition, many plots are located at, or in the near vicinity of, intensively managed sites such as camp-grounds and other tourist destinations. A synopsis of related data packages which have been collected as part of the Three Park Savanna Fire-effects Plot Network's full program is provided at https://doi.org/10.25911/5c3c22985ac2b. Sampling method: The 220 plots across the three National Parks (Kakadu, Litchfield and Nitmiluk) were established in 1995 in collaboration with the Park rangers to answers questions relating to fire management and park resources. Study extent: 133 plots are located in Kakadu, 41 plots are located in Litchfield and 46 plots are located in Nitmuluk. Plots are located across the parks in a variety of habitats from lowland woodlands to rocky hillsides and ‘table top’ plateau. Occasional data is missing from years due to constraints in accessing sites. Project funding: Between 2012 and 2018 this project was part of, and funded through the Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN) a facility within the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) and supported by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy. This project has also received funding through Parks Australia, NT Parks & Wildlife Service, Tropical Savannas CRC, and Darwin Centre for Bushfires Research (Charles Darwin University).

Methods
1
Plot set-up
The overall plot sizes are 40 x 20 metres. Each plot is permanently located by a central metal star picket and GPS waypoint. Plots relocated by helicopter have a round large white lid on top to assist sighting the plot from air.
A permanent photo picket with number plate is placed 10 metre inside the plot parallel with the plot sides.
The corners and inner transects are marked by metal droppers.
The inner 40 x 10 metre plot is delineated with measuring tapes. Two 50 metre tapes are laid out 5 metre either side of central photo picket, parallel to the longer central axis, starting at zero on the left hand side heading to the back of the plot, and again at zero on the right hand side heading to the top of the plot.
NB: Some plots are not strictly 40 metres long due to plot landscape constraints.

Record of fire occurrence
Fire occurrence is recorded based on on-ground plot visits, and from aerial ground-truthing assessments of each park's satellite-based fire mapping programme.
An assessment is made as to whether the plot was unburnt, patchily burnt (ground cover at least 20% unburnt), or burnt, in three seasonal periods as follows: Wet season (w) - from onset of rains (typically November) until their cessation (typically March - April); Early dry season (e) - from end of wet season until end of July; Late dry season (l) - from August until start of rains.

Ground-based photos
Photos are supposed to be taken biannually, post wet season and late dry season. Often parks staff only manage one photo per year.
These images are not stored as part of this data package due to their size, but can be provided on request from Dr Russell-Smith.

Fire severity score
Fire severity is scored for each recorded fire event from plot photos.
Plot photos are scored by a member of the research team and fire managers from the park.
Two seasonal photos per plot in any 1 year are not always available. However, in nearly all instances it is possible to confidently attribute fires to (1) season, given recourse to comprehensive plot records; and (2) severity class, by close examination of differences between foliage condition and vegetation structure in photo temporal sequences.
Note: This method may not detect all fires of very low severity or high patchiness occurring especially in wet or early dry season periods given rapid post-fire regrowth under high soil moisture conditions.
Fire severity is recorded using one or more the following categories:
• 1 = Low
• 2 = Moderate
• 3 = High
• P = Patchily burnt
• U = Unburnt
• B = Burnt. Photo records missing.
• W = Burn that occurred in the wet season
If no assessment is done the fire severity is recorded as NA.
