Fire_cci long-term Beta Burned Area dataset

In this webpage, you will be able to download the long-term beta global burned area (BA) data generated by the Fire_cci project. Fire_cci is one of the Essential Climate Variables (Fire disturbance) under the European Space Agency’s Climate Change Initiative. The scope of the project is to provide long-term burned area information for global vegetation and atmospheric modellers.

This product is based on AVHRR-LTDR data, and it is called FireCCILT10 for short. The dataset is provided in a Beta status. Further development of the algorithm and BA product is envisioned during the Fire_cci+ project.

FireCCILT10 was released on March 2019, and covers the period 1982-2017, with the exclusion of 1994 due to lack of sufficient information. It is provided as a grid product with a resolution of 0.25 degrees.

For further information on the characteristics and variables of the dataset, please refer to the Product User Guide.
