Since the last meeting in INPE, the netwok has been using GEE to evaluate the potential of time series to improve Burned Area detection. A new model is under review, which is based on maximum values of prefire-NBR-values and the filtering of clouds, shadows and bare soils. Preliminary results were presented in the ForestSAT 2018 (POSTER), organized by The University of Maryland and NASA Goddard space flight center.
RedLatIF was present at the symposium SELPER Argentina 2016 and at the conference ForestSat Chile 2016. Several presentations were made about the network and current projects. To highlight, the presentation of Alberto Setzer given the added value of fire pixels (reports, tables, summary, etc). All presentations from ForestSat Fire meeting are available at the GOFC-FIRE page:
