New article published describing the FireCCI50 burned area product

The article titled "Generation and analysis of a new global burned area product based on MODIS 250 m reflectance bands and thermal anomalies" has been published in Earth System Science Data:

This paper presents a the FireCCI50 global burned area product, generated from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) red and near-infrared reflectances and thermal anomaly data, thus providing the highest spatial resolution (approx. 250m) among the existing global BA datasets, together with the new FireCCI51 product.
