MODIS active fire data offer new information about global fire patterns. However, uncertainties in detection rates can render satellite-derived fire statistics difficult to interpret.We evaluated theMODIS 1 kmdaily active fire product to quantify detection rates for both Terra andAquaMODIS sensors, examined how cloud cover and fire size affected detection rates, and estimated how detection rates varied across the United States. MODIS active fire detections were compared to 361 reference fires… CONTINUE READING
