FireCCI51 for 2018 released!

During the month of July, an extra year of the FireCCI51 burned area product has been released, based on 250m spatial resolution NIR data from the Terra MODIS sensor, and covering the year 2018. This data complements the existing 2001-2017 time series, for a total of 18 years of burned area information, both in pixel and grid format. You are invited to download the data from
