Burned Area Products

As part of the Fire_cci project, several algorithms have been or are being tested in different parts of the world, involving the use of medium to high resolution satellite images, including MERIS, MODIS, Sentinel 1, Sentinel 2, Sentinel-3 and AVHRR data.

The following burned area products are currently available:

  • FireCCI31: Based on MERIS data, global at 300m for 2006-2008 (Deprecated)
  • FireCCI41: Based on MERIS data, global at 300m for 2005-2011 (Deprecated)
  • FireCCI50: Based on MODIS data, global at 250m for 2001-2016 (Old version)
  • FireCCI51: Based on MODIS data, global at 250m for 2001-2018 (in the future 2019 will also be produced)
  • FireCCISFD11: Based on Sentinel-2 data, for Sub-Saharan Africa at 20m for the year 2016
  • FireCCS1SA10 (beta product): Based on Sentinel-1 data, for a Large Demonstrator Area in the Amazon at 40m for the year 2017
  • FireCCILT10 (beta product): Based on AVHRR-LTDR data, global at 0.25 degrees for 1982-2017

Other products are under development in the current Fire_cci project:

  • Sub-Saharan Africa based on Sentinel-2 for 2019
  • Global product based on Sentinel-3 data for 2019-2020
  • Global product based on AVHRR-LTDR data for 1982-2020 (revised algorithm)
  • Test sites in Africa based on Sentinel-1 and a combination of S1 & S2 data for 2019
  • Global products based on merged reflectance or merged burned area outputs
