Burnt area maps - EFFIS Damage Assessment

Collection: JRC-FOREST : JRC Forest Research Activities 

Description

Data produced by the EFFIS Damage Assessment module, aimed to provide assessment of the burnt areas in Europe at the end of each fire season. Maps of burnt areas are derived from the classification of satellite images, outlining forest fires with a final size of at least 50 ha. Since fire events of this size occur mostly in Southern Europe, the extent covered is limited to this area.These maps are further analyzed in conjunction with the Corine Land Cover database (CLC2000) to estimate the damage to forests and other land cover types. Maps are available from the year 2000 onward.The EFFIS Damage Assessment module provides a harmonized system allowing the comparison of fire damages between the different regions of the European Union.
