MODIS/Aqua Thermal Anomalies/Fire 8-Day L3 Global 1km SIN Grid V061

Metadata Updated: December 7, 2023

The Aqua Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) Thermal Anomalies and Fire 8-Day (MYD14A2) Version 6.1 data are generated at 1 kilometer (km) spatial resolution as a Level 3 product. The MYD14A2 gridded composite contains maximum value of individual fire pixel classes detected during the eight days of acquisition.

The Science Dataset (SDS) layers include the fire mask and pixel quality indicators.

Validation at stage 3 (https://modis-land.gsfc.nasa.gov/MODLAND_val.html) has been achieved for all MODIS Thermal Anomalies and Fire products. Further details regarding MODIS land product validation for the MOD14 data product is available from the MODIS land team validation site (https://modis-land.gsfc.nasa.gov/ValStatus.php?ProductID=MOD14).

Improvements/Changes from Previous Versions

  • The Version 6.1 Level-1B (L1B) products have been improved by undergoing various calibration changes that include: changes to the response-versus-scan angle (RVS) approach that affects reflectance bands for Aqua and Terra MODIS, corrections to adjust for the optical crosstalk in Terra MODIS infrared (IR) bands, and corrections to the Terra MODIS forward look-up table (LUT) update for the period 2012 - 2017.
  • A polarization correction has been applied to the L1B Reflective Solar Bands (RSB).
