ERS-1 : ATSR-1

Due to the environmental consequences of vegetation fires on a global scale (atmospheric emissions, greenhouse effect), regular maps of burned surfaces at a global scale are required by the scientific community. The CEOS pilot project Global Observation of Forest Cover (GOFC) has in particular requested the production of 1km resolution global area burnt products using the ATSR-2 instrument on board the ERS-2 satellite.

The objective of the GlobScar project was to demonstrate the feasibility of a processing, production and distribution chain of a global burn scar products on a regular basis and within a timely framework, based on ATSR-data. As a demonstration, one year (2000) of ATSR-products will be processed and validated.
