Characterization of burned areas from data obtained by remote sensing

Project Details

Description

The ipcc intergovernmental climate change panel and the conference of the cop parties have concluded that the occurrence of fire is one of the most important factors in the emission of greenhouse gases.this is especially true in developing countries.

Objective

Determine the spatial and temporal extent of burned areas

Expected results

The maps of burnt area prepared to date are considered as very inaccurate, the difficulty lies in the determination of burned area thresholds. this article will address the issue and therefore of interest to the scientific community.
