Summary
Abstract: MCD45A1 is a monthly Level-3 gridded 500-meter product, which contains burning and quality information on a per-pixel basis. Produced from both the Terra and Aqua MODIS-derived daily surface reflectance inputs, the algorithm analyzes the daily surface reflectance dynamics to locate rapid changes, uses that information to detect the approximate date of burning, and maps the spatial extent of recent ...
