The Global Burnt Area 2000 initiative GBA-2000 Mapping, from SPOT-VEGETATION S1 imagery, of the areas burnt globally during the year 2000 Final results J-M. Grégoire & K. Tansey with E. Binaghi, L. Boschetti, P.A. Brivio, D. Ershov, S. Flasse, R. Fraser, D. Graetz, M. Maggi, P. Peduzzi, J.M.C. Pereira, J.M.N. Silva, A. Sousa and D. Stroppiana March 2003
GBA-2000 Product definition 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
Total annual burned area estimated at 3.5 million km 2 > 600,000 burn scars detected
Africa: Total annual burned area estimated at 2.6 million km 2 > 300,000 burn scars detected Seasonal distribution of burning activity in Africa for the Year 2000
