The seminar will present the latest results of the fire_cci project, currently developed within the ESA Climate Change initiative to develop critical information for climate modellers.

The fire_cci will derive burned pixels from ATSR, VGT and MERIS data.

In addition, the determination of burn severity from coarse and medium resolution satellite data will be presented.
