A multi-temporal burn scar detection algorithm designed for global application is described and demonstrated using 24-daily AVHRR images of an area of savanna burning near the Okavango Delta, Southern Africa. Thealgorithm is computationally simple, does not use fixed thresholds except to detect saturated AVHRR pixels, and incorporates a recent active-fire detection algorithm. The algorithm provides the basis for operational burn scar monitoring using the AVHRR and MODIS.
