Normalized Burn Ratio

Normalized Burn Ratio

In 2019, a severe wildfire occurred in Emas National Park in Goiás, causing damage to the local biodiversity and significant atmospheric impacts. Based on this, I created a map using Landsat 8 satellite imagery, which allowed me to calculate the Normalized Burn Ratio (NBR). By contrasting this data with fire data from INPE (National Institute for Space Research) and vector data from the park provided by ICMBio (Chico Mendes Institute for Biodiversity Conservation), it was possible to graphically represent the wildfire and its consequences on the local vegetation.
