Connection between the seasonal atmospheric effect �El nino� and surface areas burned by fire on a global scale
Remote sensing information has a huge relevance for the international research community. The possibility of accessing this kind of information allows the creation of global information systems to obtain a better knowledge of global change. GLINTS-BS is a Global Information System for Burn Scar Maps developed in the Global Vegetation Monitoring Unit (GVM) of the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in Ispra (Italy). It processes daily global NOAA-AVHRR Pathfinder GAC - 8 km to obtain Global Burn Scar Maps. It has been used to process 13 years of these data. The unit's contribution to global change research is oriented to demonstrate the relation between "El nino" southern oscillation and the burn surfaces data. This presentation provides detailed technical information about the post-processing applied to both sets of data, and concludes that there is a one-year shift between them.
