1 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit 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, March 2002

2 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit  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 Product definition

3 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit GBA-2000 General approach  7 co-investigators CSIRO, 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)

4 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit GBA-2000 Regional algorithms & Global processing chain for more information Kevin Tansey at Grégoire et al., 2002  5 regional algorithms have been selected  the moist tropical forest remains a problem  the global processing chain is complete and running

5 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit GBA-2000 Monthly burnt area maps

6 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit Availability of burnt area maps February April May June

7 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit GBA-2000 Statistical information

8 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit Reporting of areas burnt at country level Analysis of fire seasonality Statistics for reporting on fire activity at the country level Areas burnt per type of vegetation cover

9 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit Statistics for management of protected areas (Mozambique)

10 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit Areas burnt in tropical forest sample sites (TREES)

11 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit Statistics for modelling of emissions of GHG & aerosols Global grid 1 o x1 o cells

12 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit GBA-2000 Data distribution Maps of burnt areas and statistical information made accessible via an Internet Map Server implemented in collaboration with UNEP-GRID Geneva

13 Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit GBA 2000 Internet Map Server
