Burned Area Mapping in Chalkidiki (Sithonia)

The burned area mapping service (NOFFi-OBAM) was employed to map a recent fire in Sarti, Sithonia, Chalkidiki. The analysis was conducted using a Sentinel-2 satellite image (spatial resolution of 10 m), acquired on October 26, 2018. The mapping revealed that a total of 674 ha of forest, farmland and grassland were burned.

It should be noted that the NOFFi-OBAM service is systematically employed during this fire season and its results are being exploited by the Central Forestry Service (Directorate General of Forests and Forest Environment of the Hellenic Ministry of Environment and Energy), the local forestry offices, as well as the General Secretariat for Civil Protection.
