Abstract: The gridded MODIS active fire products present gridded statistical summaries of
fire pixel information (Giglio et al., 2003). These products are intended for
use in Giovanni system focused on regional (NEESPI) analysis of surface
processes and climate modeling. The products are generated at 1 degree spatial
resolution for time period of one calendar month. These products are generated
from MODIS CMG 0.5 degree products (Giglio et al., 2006).

The MODIS fire products include four individual data sets within one file:
CorrFirePix (overpass corrected fire pixel count), CloudCorrFirePix (overpass
and cloud corrected fire pixel count), MeanPower (mean Fire Radiative Power),
and MeanCloudFraction (mean Cloud Fraction).
