MOD 14 - Thermal Anomalies - Fires and Biomass Burning

The MODIS Thermal Anomalies product includes fire occurrence (day/night), fire loca-tion, the logical criteria used for the fire selection, and an energy calculation for each fire. The product also includes composite 8-day-and-night fire occurrence (full resolution), composite monthly day-and-night fire occurrence (full resolution), gridded 10-km sum-mary per fire class (daily/8-day/monthly), and a gridded 0.5° summary of fire counts per class (daily/8-day/ monthly). The Level 2 product includes various firerelated parameters including the occurrence of day and nighttime thermal anomalies, flagged and grouped into different temperature classes with emitted energy from the fire. These parameters are retrieved daily at 1-km resolution.
