AVHRR Forest Fire Hotspots in Canada for 1994 to 2001
Entry ID: Canada_CCRS_ForFireHotspot94-99

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: A fire detection (hotspot) algorithm was developed that exploits the infrared
channels (2-5) from AVHRR. The algorithm is based on the framework of Kaufman
et al. with modifications for the NOAA-14/16 AVHRR sensors. New tests were
also introduced to account for the unique environmental and wildfire
characteristics of boreal forests. The algorithm ... View entire text
