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.
