Description

The MOD14A1 V6 dataset provides daily fire mask composites at 1km resolution derived from the MODIS 4- and 11-micrometer radiances. The fire detection strategy is based on absolute detection of a fire (when the fire strength is sufficient to detect), and on detection relative to its background (to account for variability of the surface temperature and reflection by sunlight). The product distinguishes between fire, no fire and no observation. This information is used for monitoring the spatial and temporal distribution of fires in different ecosystems, detecting changes in fire distribution and identifying new fire frontiers, wild fires, and changes in the frequency of the fires or their relative strength. For more information see the MOD14 user guide.
