Count Component Title Abstract
1 GOES Fire Detects from the Wildfire Automated Biomass Burning Algorithm (WF-ABBA) The GOES ABBA is a contextual multi-spectral thresholding algorithm which utilizes dynamic local thresholds derived from the GOES satellite imagery and ancillary databases to locate fire pixels and provides estimates of the sub-pixel area and mean temperature of the fire(s). Developed by Dr. Elaine Prins, NESDIS/ORA at the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), the algorithm is now run operationally by NESDIS/OSDPD. OSDPD produces and archives fire detects over N. America.

      Count Component DateTime Description
      1 9999-01-01T00:00:00 The SSD product is a reformatted version of the North American product available on the CIMSS website. The reformatting of the WF-ABBA product consists of removing the lowest probability fires (category 5), as validation at CIMSS has shown that many of the low possibility fires are not fires. The fields fire size and temperature have been removed as they are very rough estimates of the average instantaneous sub-pixel fire(s) size and temperature, and are not meant to be used for wildfire diagnosis.
