This repository contains tree canopy cover loss information between January 2018 and April 2021 for Germany at monthly resolution. The analysis is based on monthly image composites of the disturbance index (DI) derived from Sentinel-2 and Landsat-8 time series. Deviations from a 2017 reference median DI image exceeding a threshold are recorded as losses. The method used to derive this product as well as the mapping results are described in detail in Thonfeld et al. (2022). The map depicts areas of natural disturbances (windthrow, fire, droughts, insect infestation) as well as sanitation and salvage logging, and regular forest harvest without explicitly differentiating these drivers.
