The ESA Fire Climate Change Initiative (Fire_cci) project is producing long-term datasets of burned area information from satellites, as part of the ESA Climate Change Initiative. The data is of use for those interested in historical burned patterns, fire management and emissions analysis and climate change research, by providing a consistent burned area time series.
Current datasets consist of maps of global burned area for the years 1982 to 2019. Products are available at different spatial resolutions: the Pixel product (at the original resolution of the sensor data) and the Grid product (0.25 degrees resolution), the latter of which is produced from the Pixel product. They are based upon spectral information from different sensors, and in many cases also thermal information from active fires.
FireCCI41: Medium Resolution Imaging Spectrometer (MERIS) reflectance, on board the ENVISAT ESA satellite, 300m spatial resolution, and MODIS active fires. Temporal resolution: 2005 – 2011.
FireCCI50: Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) reflectance and active fires, on board the TERRA satellite, 250m spatial resolution, temporal resolution: 2001 – 2016.
FireCCI51: Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) reflectance and active fires, on board the TERRA satellite, 250m spatial resolution, temporal resolution: 2001 – 2019.
FireCCILT10 (beta product): Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) Land Long Term Data Record (LTDR) reflectance. Provided only as grid product. Temporal resolution: 1982-2017.
FireCCISFD11: Multispectral Instrument (MSI) reflectance, on board the Sentinel-2A satellite, 20 spatial resolution, and MODIS active fires. Temporal resolution: 2016, spatial coverage: Sub-Saharan Africa.
