Extension of the FireCCI51 product to 2019

During the last months the FireCCI51 product has been processed for 2019, and it has now been released.

This extends the dataset to cover the period 2001 to 2019, making it the longest available global burned area product at 250m spatial resolution. You can download the FireCCI51 data from https://www.esa-fire-cci.org/FireCCI51.

Temporal Anomalies in Burned Area Trends: Satellite Estimations of the Amazonian 2019 Fire Crisis

Remote Sensing has recently published a scientific letter comparing the fire occurrence estimations informed by the press (based on active fire information) and the burned area detected by the FireCCI51 algorithm during the Amazonian 2019 fire crisis.

A spatio-temporal active-fire clustering approach for global burned area mapping at 250 m from MODIS data

A new research paper by Joshua Lizundia-Loiola et al. has been published in Remote Sensing of Environment, describing the FireCCI51 algorithm and product. This product detects more area than other MODIS-based datasets.


Roser Majoral Moliné 2019 Award received for a FireCCI50 scientific article

 During the XXVI Congress of the Spanish Association of Geographers, held on 22-25 October 2019 at Valencia, Spain, the article "Generation and analysis of a new burned area product based on MODIS 250m reflectance bands and thermal anomalies" was awarded the Roser Majoral Moliné 2019 price for the best paper published in international journals.
