As part of the Fire_cci Phase 2, several algorithms are being tested in different parts of the world, involving the use of medium to high resolution satellite images, includint Sentinel 1, Sentinel 2 and Proba-V.
The following burned area test product are being produced, for the years 2015 - 2016:
- Africa based on Sentinel 2 data.
- Africa based on Sentinel 1 data, to complement the cloudy regions of the Sentinel 2 images.
- Test sites of Africa based on Proba-V 100 m.
- Test sites of South America based on Sentinel 1.
Different Sentinel 1 algorithms are being used for each continent, and a comparison of these algorithms will be performed within the project.
We encourage users to test these products as they are released, and send us your feedback to improve further development.
