Burnt Area - PROBA-V - Africa

Abstract:
BA or Burnt Area products include information on the first date of burn area since the start of the fire season (1st April), as stored in the so-called BA-DAY dataset, and on the temporal pattern of the fire activity. The input data are daily surface reflectances of PROBA-V VEGETATION sensor. The burnt areas are surfaces which have been sufficiently affected by fire to display significant changes in the vegetation cover (destruction of dry material, reduction or loss of green material) and in the ground surface (temporarily darker because of ash). As fire can occur in any type of environmental context, the properties of the burnt surface may differ significantly from place to place. Therefore their identification is based on a combination of surface's properties and change detection, i.e. differences in spectral properties before and after the fire occurrence, following refined L3JRC/GBA2000 methods. The BA product is generated every 10 days over Africa as part of the Geoland2 BioPar core mapping service.
