An assessment based on post-fire imagery that was acquired near the peak of green following fire containment (most often from the following year). An extended assessment is conducted when an initial assessment is not a good option (e.g., late season fires) or when an estimate of delayed mortality is needed. For fires that occur in deciduous forests early in the year (leaf-off conditions), imagery from same year may be used. See also Initial Assessment.
