Description

The daily Suomi National Polar-Orbiting Partnership (Suomi NPP) NASA Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) Burned Area (VNP64A1) Version 1 data product is a monthly, global gridded 500m product containing per-pixel burned area and quality information. The VNP64 burned area mapping approach employs 750m VIIRS imagery coupled with 750m VIIRS active fire observations.

VIIRS bands that are both sensitive and insensitive to biomass burning are used to detect changes caused by fire and to differentiate them from other types of change.
