Potential Fire Detection based on Kalman-driven Change Detection
A new active fire event detection algorithm for data collected with the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) sensor, based on the extended Kalman filter, is introduced. Instead of using the observed temperatures of the spatial neighbours of a pixel to detect anomalous temperatures, the new algorithm only considers previous observations at the current pixel. The algorithm harnesses the Kalman filter to obtain a prediction of the expected brightness temperature at a given location, which is then compared to the actual SEVIRI observation. An adaptive threshold is used to determine whether the observed difference is indicative of a potential fire event. Initial tests show that the performance of this method is comparable to that of the EUMETSAT FIR product.
