Abstract

This paper uses NOAA AVHRR data from 1989,90,91,92, supplemented with Landsat and SPOT data, to describe the Senegalese fire regime based on the active fire detection approach. Possible explanations for the observed patterns will be discussed. The results show that the northern limit of intense fire activity in savannah woodlands can not be adequately explained by variations in rainfall, herbaceous biomass distribution or land cover type. Senegal may be divided into regions characterized by a more or less well-defined pattern of fire occurences
