MODIS Sub-Pixel Patchiness Monthly Australia 250m.

Abstract or Summary

This product provides an estimate of the fraction of a pixel burnt. Inputs are daily day time observations from MODIS sensors on Terra and Aqua. Observations are atmospherically corrected and the pixel fraction burnt is estimated through spectral unmixing.
