Paper Abstract

The results of estimation of burned area from wildfires in Eastern Siberia using a threshold algorithm and expert evaluation are presented. Atmospheric emissions of CO2 and PM10 particles from wildfires are calculated. Obtained estimations of burned area shows a good agreement with the MODIS and GFED-4 data: the correlation coefficients were ~0.95 and ~0.87, and the average relative errors were 16.5% and 40.6%, respectively. A preliminary analysis of the dataset allowed us to make a quantitative assessment of the fire activity in the Eastern Siberia during 1984-2000.
