The Global Burnt Area 2000 initiative: GBA-2000

Mapping, from SPOT-VEGETATION S1 imagery, of the areas burnt globally during the year 2000

Status on March 2002

Grégoire J-M., K. Tansey, I. Marengo and J.M.N. Silva

GLC 2000 – “FIRST RESULTS” WORKSHOP

JRC – Ispra, 18-22 March 2002


GBA-2000 Product definition

  • a binary map (burnt-unburnt)

    monthly non-accumulative global burn scar map, at 1 km resolution

  • statistics of burnt areas

    area burnt in 2000 per country, per month, and

  • per main types of vegetation cover (UMD & GLC2000)


GBA-2000 General approach

  • 7 co-investigatorsCSIRO, CCRS, IFI, CNR, UTL, GVM, NRI

  • regional algorithms for processing VGT S1 to burnt area maps

  • integration into a global processing chain(at JRC)

  • processing of the complete global time series (at JRC)

  • production of monthly global maps & statistics(at JRC)

  • GBA2000 products publicly available(IMS at UNEP-GRID)


GBA-2000

Regional algorithms & Global processing chain

  • 5 regional algorithms have been selected

  • the moist tropical forest remains a problem

  • the global processing chain is complete and running
