Release of VIIRS Active Fire Products

by LP DAAC - jwilson » Mon May 06, 2024 2:52 pm America/New_York

The LP DAAC is pleased to announce the addition of the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Version 2 Active Fires products to the Thermal Anomalies/Fire product suite. The VIIRS Version 2 release includes data products from both the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) satellite and the NOAA-20 satellite which was previously called Joint Polar Satellite System-1 (JPSS-1). This release covers the joint mission period from year 2018 up to the leading edge.

VNP14IMG and VJ114IMG are produced in 6-minute temporal satellite increments (swaths) at a 375 meter resolution. This data will enable users to understand the location and intensity of fire events. Due to a higher spatial resolution, the active fire products provide greater response over fires of relatively small areas, as well as improved mapping of large fire perimeters in comparison to the VNP14 fire data product.

Details on product improvements for Version 2 are provided on the Digital Object Identifier (DOI) landing pages.

A citation containing the DOI for each VIIRS Version 2 Thermal Anomalies and Fire dataset is provided below.
