Fire Radiative Power is used to measure intensity; it depicts the pixel-integrated fire radiative power in MW (megawatts). FRP provides information on the measured radiant heat output of detected fires. The amount of radiant heat energy liberated per unit...
Thanks for your query. You can obtain burned area data from MODIS (MCD65) (GeoTIFF, shape and HDF files) from http://modis-fire.umd.edu/pages/BurnedArea.php The algorithm doesn't pick up small / cool fires so that may only get you so far. You can try u...
