Burned Area Detection and Mapping: Intercomparison of Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 Based Algorithms over Tropical Africa

A new article has been published in Remote Sensing, comparing different algorithms for burned area detection based on Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2.




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.

Global Detection of Long-Term (1982–2017) Burned Area with AVHRR-LTDR Data

Remote Sensing has recently published this article by Gonzalo Otón et al., explaining the algorithm to produce the burned area product from AVHRR-LTDR. The article can be donwloaded from the Remote Sensing website, and the data from the download webpage.
