Fire Frequency - AVHRR, Australian algorithm

Description

Fire Frequency is derived from a time series of burnt area maps (derived from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR)) and provides the average number of fires affecting an area in the given time period. It is the inverse of the fire return interval.

Credit
This work was funded by the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN), an Australian Government NCRIS-enabled project.

Purpose
This product provides the number of times an area has been affected by fire in a given time period (1997-2011). The resolution of AVHRR of 1.1 km at nadir and the manual interpretation restricts its application to fires larger than about 4 km^2.
