Summary
Abstract: Comparatively little is known empirically about the vegetation fire
regime of Southeast Asia when viewed at larger scales. This is despite
the importance of fire as an agent of regional land cover change and
in modifying atmospheric chemistry. Fire is widely used in rice

the fire detection algorithms is determined by the characteristics of
the training-set used to define their thresholds. It is considered
that the active fire estimates provided here are conservative since a
