Satellite contributions to the quantitative characterization of biomass burning for climate modeling

Charles Ichoku, Ralph Kahn, Mian Chin
2012 Atmospheric research  
These improved data products have enabled significant progress in the study of biomass burning from space.  ...  Some of the qualitative satellite datasets, such as fire locations, aerosol index, and gas estimates have fairly long-term records.  ...  We would like to extend our appreciation to the science teams responsible for developing the various biomass-burning products referenced in this paper.  ...
