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 have been produced:
