MODIS/Terra Near Real Time (NRT) Coarse Thermal Anomalies/Fire 5-Min L2 Swath 5km V005
Entry ID: MOD14CRS


Summary
Abstract: MODIS Near Real Time (NRT) Thermal Anomalies/Fire products are primarily derived from MODIS 4- and 11-micrometer radiances. The fire detection strategy is based on absolute detection of a fire (a fire of strength sufficient to detect), and on detection relative to its background (to account for variability of the surface temperature and reflection by sunlight). Numerous tests are employed to ... View entire text

Quality Overall NRT products match to operational with some expected minor differences from use of different ancillaries and ephemeris. There aren't any data gaps or data artifacts. Information on comparison of C5 Operational and NRT Atmospheric Products is posted at: http://lance.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/data_products/comparison.html. Information on comparison of C6 Operational and NRT Atmospheric and Land Products is posted at: http://lance3.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/data_products/comparison_atmos... and http://lance3.modaps.eosdis.nasa.gov/data_products/comparison_land.....
