Short Name:

ABoVE: AVHRR-Derived Forest Fire Burned Area-Hot Spots, Alaska and Canada, 1989-2000

This dataset provides annual forest fire burned area and daily hotspot products developed using data acquired from the Advanced Very-High-Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) instruments carried aboard two NOAA polar-orbiting satellites (NOAA-11 and NOAA-14). The fire products were generated over 12 fire seasons (1st May - 31st October) from 1989-2000 across North America at 1-km resolution and subset to the ABoVE spatial domain of Alaska and Canada.
