Satellite-derived BA mapping accuracy in the Brazilian savannas is limited by the underestimation of burn scars from small, fragmented fires and high cloudiness.  ...  Finally, our approach represents at least a 45% increase in BA mapped in the Cerrado, in comparison to the annual extent detected by the current coarse global product from MODIS satellite (MCD64), and  ...  Acknowledgments: The authors would like to thank Alberto W. Setzer for contributions in the early stages of this work. Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...

Assessment of Wildfire Activity Development Trends for Eastern Australia Using Multi-Sensor Earth Observation Data

Michael Nolde, Norman Mueller, Günter Strunz, Torsten Riedlinger
2021 Remote Sensing  
Increased fire activity across the Amazon, Australia, and even the Arctic regions has received wide recognition in the global media in recent years.  ...  The analyzed data is based on 3503 tiles of the ESA Sentinel-3 OLCI instrument, extended by 9612 granules of the NASA MODIS MOD09/MYD09 product.  ...  How well do global burned area products represent fire patterns in the Brazilian Savannas biome? An accuracy assessment of the MCD64 collections. Int. J. Appl. Earth Obs.  ...
