Fire severity describes the immediate impact of fire on vegetation. The MODIS Fire severity product provides two classes – non-severe and severe. Non-severe fires only impacted the understorey while severe fires have impacted the tree canopy as well.
Validation data was collected along transects through visual observation from a low flying helicopter. In 2015 a total of 1,750 km of transects have been covered, yielding a total of 749 fire severity validation points. Overall accuracy is 75%.
