Abstract: Five compositing criteria were compared for the specific aim of monitoring burned areas using AVHRR data. Two of them were based on a maximum value technique: Maximum Value Composite of NDVI (MVCN) and of Surface Temperature (MVCTs). Three others were based on a minimum value technique: Minimum Value Composite of Channel 1 (MiVCB1), channel 2 )MiVCB2) and Albedo (MiVCA). The different compositing criteria were assessed based on their ability to retain burned areas and also on their choice of close to nadir pixels. Although impossible to choose a single best compositing criteria proved to be the best (MiVCA) comprise because it chose near to nadir pixels and performed best in terms of separability between burned and unburned areas.
