Fire Inventory from NCAR version 2 Fire Emission

| DOI: 10.5065/XNPA-AF09

The Fire INventory from NCAR (FINN) provides daily global fire emissions at high spatial resolution. The FINN model uses satellite detection of active fires (thermal anomalies) and the land cover type to determine the emission estimates. The emission estimates are based on two uses of satellite observations: (1) MODIS fire detection, (2) Both MODIS and VIIRS (Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite) active fire detection.

Global daily emission estimates of key gases and aerosols as well as the speciation of the total VOC emissions for three common chemical mechanisms (MOZART-T1, SAPRC99 and GEOS-Chem) are included. Results are available in yearly files at 0.1 by 0.1 degree resolution, or in yearly text files of fire spots at 1 km resolution.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
