Received 28 December 2009; revised 3 June 2010; accepted 11 June 2010; published 10 November 2010. [1] Spaceborne instruments provide a unique view of global vegetation fire activity many times a day. In this study, we assessed the fire characterization information provided by two major products: the Terra and Aqua MODIS Thermal Anomalies product (MOD14 and MYD14, respectively) and the Wildfire Automated Biomass Burning Algorithm (WF_ABBA) product derived from GOES East Imager. Using higher…

Evaluating the SEVIRI Fire Thermal Anomaly Detection Algorithm across the Central African Republic Using the MODIS Active Fire Product

This work evaluates the performance of the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) Fire Thermal Anomaly (FTA) detection algorithm using seven months of active fire pixels detected by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) across the Central African Republic.

Quantification of MODIS fire radiative power (FRP) measurement uncertainty for use in satellite‐based active fire characterization and biomass burning estimation

Satellite measurements of fire radiative power (FRP) are increasingly used to estimate the contribution of biomass burning to local and global carbon budgets. Without an associated uncertainty,

The use of satellite‐measured aerosol optical depth to constrain biomass burning emissions source strength in the global model GOCART

[1] Simulations of biomass burning (BB) emissions in chemistry transport models strongly depend on the inventories that define emission source location and strength. We use 13 global biomass burning

Fire Detection and Fire Radiative Power in Forests and Low-Biomass Lands in Northeast Asia: MODIS versus VIIRS Fire Products

A better understanding of fire detection and FRP retrieval performance between MODIS and its successor VIIRS is contributed, providing valuable information for using those data in the study of fire regimes andFRP-based fire emission estimation.

Is burn severity related to fire intensity? Observations from landscape scale remote sensing

Biomass burning by wildland fires has significant ecological, social and economic impacts. Satellite remote sensing provides direct measurements of radiative energy released by the fire (i.e. fire

This study used same-day 30-m spatial resolution Landsat-7/ETM+ and Terra/ASTER data to study the short-term development of active fires in the Brazilian Amazon between the overpasses of the two satellites, finding spuriously increased detection probabilities using ETM+ resulting from the observed increase of fire activity between the ETM + ASTER acquisitions.
