Description

The Burn Area Index (BAI) is generated from the Red and Near-IR bands, and measures the spectral distance of each pixel from a reference spectral point (the measured reflectance of charcoal). This index is intended to emphasize the charcoal signal in post-fire images. See Chuvieco et al. (2002) for details. This product is generated from the MODIS/006/MCD43A4 surface reflectance composites.
