  • Wildfire Monitoring with Next-Generation Satellites


    Webinar with Federico Fierli (EUMETSAT), Sabrina Szeto (MEEO) and Carla Barroso (EUMETSAT)

    In the near future, new satellites such as Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) and Metop - Second Generation (Metop-SG) will provide advanced capabilities and valuable data for monitoring fires and their impacts. This short course showcases a series of case studies and associated workflows in Jupyter notebooks for fire applications using proxy data from MTG and Metop-SG. Join us to explore the case studies focusing on the August Complex fires in 2020, California USA and the Mediterranean fires in summer 2021! 

    Each case study focuses on a specific past fire event to demonstrate how data from MTG and Metop-SG can be used for operational and monitoring purposes. Different stages of the fire life cycle are highlighted: from pre-fire risk, active burning and smoke transport to post-fire burnt area assessment. Each figure shown in the case study is linked to a Jupyter notebook that demonstrates in an instructional, step-by-step workflow how the figure was created and which proxy data was used.
