Abstract: Daily global observations from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometers (AVHRR) on the series of meteorological satellites operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) between 1982 and 1999 (17 years) were used to generate a new weekly global burnt surface product at a resolution of 8km. Comparison with independently available information on fire locations and timing suggest that whilst the time-series cannot yet be used to make accuracy and quantitative estimates of global burnt area, it does provide a reliable estimate of changes in location, season and interannual variability of burning on the global scale (Carmona-Moreno et al., 2005.a). This paper deals with the connection analysis of this time series and “El Niño” Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events. The spatial-temporal inter-correlation analyses show likely connections between both phenomena at global scale during the period considered even if these results need to be confirmed with longer time series (>40 years) of data.
