This article focuses on the mapping of fire burn scars, fire severity and soil erosion susceptibility using multi-sensoral satellite data. An automatic procedure for the mapping of fire affected areas and for the estimation of fire severity using Sentinel-2 data is presented. The Sentinel-2 based classification results are compared to a burn scar derived by a semi-automatic object-based approach using Sentinel-1 amplitude and coherence time-series data systematically processed by the Sentinel-1

Further, a transferable approach to compute a soil erosion susceptibility index based on Pléiades data is presented. The SAR-and optical-data based methods are applied in a test area near Marseille/Vitrolles, France, which was affected by severe forest fires in August 2016.
