MCD64A1 - Combined Level 3 Direct Broadcast Burned Area Monthly Global 500m SIN Grid
MCD64A1 Burned Area Product is a monthly Level-3 gridded 500-meter product containing per-pixel burning and quality information, and tile-level metadata.
The MODIS Collection 6 burned-area mapping approach employs daily 500-m MODIS surface reflectance data coupled with 1-km MODIS active fire observations. The hybrid algorithm applies dynamic thresholds to composite imagery generated from a burn-sensitive vegetation index derived from MODIS short-wave infrared channels 5 and 7, and a measure of temporal texture. Cumulative active fire maps are used to guide the selection of burned and unburned training samples and to guide the specification of prior probabilities. The combined use of active-fire and reflectance data enables the algorithm to adapt regionally over a wide range of pre- and post-burn conditions and across multiple ecosystems.
