Abstract

Guanguiltagua Metropolitan Park located in Quito is the second largest area of forest vegetation in the city, it contributes to the carbon fixation mechanism within an urban area. In the last five years, the city has overcome the temperature increase and variations of the climate mainly in the summer, which produces forest fires that deteriorate and modify the terrain morphology. The present work evaluates the evolution of fires in the Metropolitan Park Guanguiltagua of Quito, using the method of Remote sensing through the management of Landsat satellite images, in addition to the Index of Vegetation of Normalized Difference (NDVI) to be used in a model of logarithmic regression which allows to describe the vegetal regeneration in a period of 2 years.
