Fires

Active fire products from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) for the last 24 hours up to the last 90 days.
 
Fires legend

Active fires are located on the basis of the so-called thermal anomalies produced by them. The algorithms compare the temperature of a potential fire with the temperature of the land cover around it; if the difference in temperature is above a given threshold, the potential fire is confirmed as an active fire or "hot spot."

Floods

Global historical and current flood events derived from news, governmental, instrumental, and remote sensing sources from the Dartmouth Flood Observatory and Flood hazard 100 year return period Layer from Global Flood Awareness System
 
Floods legend

Flood hazard 100 year return period

Inundated areas for flood events with a return period of 100 years, based on GloFAS climatology. Permanent water bodies derived from the Global Lakes and Wetlands Database and from the Natural Earth lakes map (naturalearthdata.com).

  • Shallow (less than 1m)

  • Moderate (between 1 and 3 m)

  • Deep (between 3 and 10 m)

  • Very deep (permanent water)

Droughts

The indicator shows the risk of having impacts from a drought, by taking into account the exposure and socio-economic vulnerability of the area, with particular focus on the agricultural impacts.

Risk of Drought Impact

The indicator shows the risk of having impacts from a drought, by taking into account the exposure and socio-economic vulnerability of the area, with particular focus on the agricultural impacts. Formerly known as Likelihood of Drought Impact (LDI), it differs from the latter in that soil moisture anomaly is now included and updated every ten days (dekad).

Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies

The NOAA Coral Reef Watch (CRW) twice-weekly 50-km Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomaly product displays the difference between today's SST and the long-term average. The scale goes from -5 to +5 °C.
 
Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly legend

The NOAA Coral Reef Watch (CRW) twice-weekly 50-km Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomaly product displays the difference between today's SST and the long-term average. The scale goes from -5 to +5 °C. Positive numbers mean the temperature is warmer than average; negative means cooler than average. More at NOAA Website Please zoom out to see the layer

Coral Reef Degree Heating Weeks legend

The DHW shows how much heat stress has accumulated in an area over the past 12 weeks (3 months). In other words, NOAA add up the Coral Bleaching HotSpot values whenever the temperature exceeds the bleaching threshold. More at NOAA Website Please zoom out to see the layer
