Landsat Burned Area¶
The Landsat Burned Area product is designed to identify burned areas across all ecosystems (e.g. forests, shrublands, and grasslands) for Landsat 4-8 data. The Landsat Burned Area product contains two acquisition-based raster data products that represent burn classification and burn probability. Landsat Burned Area is generated from U.S. Landsat Analysis Ready Data (ARD) Surface Reflectance and Top of Atmosphere Brightness Temperature data.
The Landsat Burned Area product is processed to 30-meter spatial resolution in Albers Equal Area (AEA) projection using the World Geodetic System 1984 (WGS84) datum and gridded to a common tiling scheme.
