  • The ESA Fire Disturbance Climate Change Initiative (Fire_cci) project has produced maps of global burned area developed from satellite observations. The Small Fire Database (SFD) pixel products have been obtained by combining spectral information from Sentinel-2 MSI data and thermal information from VIIRS VNP14IMGML active fire products. This gridded dataset has been derived from the Small Fire Database (SFD) Burned Area pixel product for Sub-Saharan Africa, v2.0 (also available), which covers Sub-Saharan Africa for the year 2019, by summarising its burned area information into a regular grid covering the Earth at 0.05 x 0.05 degrees resolution and at monthly temporal resolution.

  • The ESA Fire Disturbance Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project has produced maps of global burned area derived from satellite observations. The AVHRR - LTDR Grid v1.0 product described here contains gridded data of global burned area derived from spectral information from the AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) Land Long Term Data Record (LTDR) v5 dataset produced by NASA. The dataset provides monthly information on global burned area on a 0.25 x 0.25 degree resolution grid from 1982 to 2017. The year 1994 is omitted as there was not enough input data for this year. For further information on the product and its format see the product user guide. This v1.0 product is released as a beta version; only the gridded version of the data is available.

  • The ESA Fire Disturbance Climate Change Initiative (Fire_cci) project has produced maps of global burned area developed from satellite observations. The Small Fire Dataset (SFD) pixel products have been obtained by combining spectral information from Sentinel-2 MSI data and thermal information from VIIRS VNP14IMGML active fire products. This dataset is part of v2.0 of the Small Fire Dataset (also known as FireCCISFD11), which covers Sub-Saharan Africa for the year 2019. Data is available here at pixel resolution (0.00017966259 degrees, corresponding to approximately 20m at the Equator). Gridded data products are also available in a separate dataset.

  • The ESA Fire Disturbance Climate Change Initiative (Fire_cci) project has produced maps of global burned area developed from satellite observations. The Small Fire Database (SFD) pixel products have been obtained by combining spectral information from Sentinel-2 MSI data and thermal information from MODIS MOD14MD Collection 6 active fire products. This gridded dataset has been derived from the Small Fire Database (SFD) Burned Area pixel product for Sub-Saharan Africa, v1.1 (also available), which covers Sub-Saharan Africa for the year 2016, by summarising its burned area information into a regular grid covering the Earth at 0.25 x 0.25 degrees resolution and at monthly temporal resolution.

  • The ESA Fire Disturbance Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project has produced maps of global burned area derived from satellite observations. The AVHRR - LTDR Grid v1.1 product described here contains gridded data of global burned area derived from spectral information from the AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) Land Long Term Data Record (LTDR) v5 dataset produced by NASA. The dataset provides monthly information on global burned area on a 0.25 x 0.25 degree resolution grid from 1982 to 2018. The year 1994 is omitted as there was not enough input data for this year. The dataset is distributed in NetCDF files, and it includes 4 layers: sum of burned area, standard error, fraction of burnable area and fraction of observed area. For further information on the product and its format see the Product User Guide.

  • The ESA Fire Disturbance Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project has produced maps of global burned area derived from satellite observations. The AVHRR - LTDR Pixel v1.1 product described here contains gridded data of global burned area derived from spectral information from the AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer) Land Long Term Data Record (LTDR) v5 dataset produced by NASA. The dataset provides monthly information on global burned area at 0.05-degree spatial resolution (the resolution of the AVHRR-LTDR input data) from 1982 to 2018. The year 1994 is omitted as there was not enough input data for this year. The dataset is distributed in monthly GeoTIFF files, packed in annual tar.gz files, and it includes 5 files: date of BA detection (labelled JD), confidence label (CL), burned area in each pixel (BA), number of observations in the month (OB) and a metadata file. For further information on the product and its format see the Product User Guide.

  • The ESA Fire Disturbance Climate Change Initiative (CCI) project has produced maps of global burned area derived from satellite observations. The MODIS Fire_cci v5.1 grid product described here contains gridded data on global burned area derived from the MODIS instrument onboard the TERRA satellite at 250m resolution for the period 2001 to 2019. This product supercedes the previously available MODIS v5.0 product. The v5.1 dataset was initially published for 2001-2017, and has been periodically extended to include 2018 to 2020. This gridded dataset has been derived from the MODIS Fire_cci v5.1 pixel product (also available) by summarising its burned area information into a regular grid covering the Earth at 0.25 x 0.25 degrees resolution and at monthly temporal resolution. Information on burned area is included in 23 individual quantities: sum of burned area, standard error, fraction of burnable area, fraction of observed area, number of patches and the burned area for 18 land cover classes, as defined by the Land_Cover_cci v2.0.7 product. For further information on the product and its format see the Fire_cci product user guide in the linked documentation.
