Landsat Collection 2 Level-3 Burned Area

Submitted by tadamson on

The Landsat Collection 2 Level-3 Burned Area (BA) science product enables users to identify burned areas across all ecosystems including forests, shrublands, and grasslands by identifying per pixel burn classification and burn probability in Landsat data from 1984 to present. Using the Burned Area product, Landsat data users can quantify patterns of fire occurrences and project future fire trends.

Several improvements for the Collection 2 BA products include a new browse file added to the product package and a modification that allows for growth in a diagonal direction.
