Summary
Abstract: [Summary adopted from the online dataset description]


The TRMM/TSDIS Fire Products include two parts:

1.The Daily hot spot image shows the geographic positions of global fire pixels daily. Typically, a pixel is identified as a fire pixel if the VIRS channel 3 brightness temperature is above 320 K and temperature difference between channel 3 and channel 4 is above 20 K in daytime. In nighttime, ... View entire text
