Abstract

Fire parameter estimation is performed using data obtained quasi-simultaneously by the Hot Spot Recognition System (HSRS) on the experimental Bi-spectral InfraRed Detection (BIRD) satellite and the MODerate resolution Imaging Spectro-radiometer (MODIS) on EOS Terra. Compared with the higher spatial resolution BIRD data, MODIS can not detect small fires, which leads in some cases to an underestimation of the cumulative Fire Radiative Power (FRP) release. FRP is a remotely sensed parameter proportional to the rate of biomass combustion. A linear relationship between FRP and the rate of vegetation combustion has been established though ground-based experiments.
