The Blended Global Biomass Burning Emissions Product (GBBEPx V3)

The Blended Global Biomass Burning Emissions Product version 3 (GBBEPx V3) system produces global biomass burning emissions. The product contains daily global biomass burning emissions (PM2.5, BC, CO, CO2, OC, and SO2) blended fire observations from MODIS Quick Fire Emission Dataset (QFED), VIIRS (NPP and JPSS-1) fire emissions, and Global Biomass Burning Emission Product from Geostationary satellites (GBBEP-Geo), which are in a grid cell of 0.25 × 0.3125 degree and 0.1 x 0.1 degree. It also produces hourly emissions from geostationary satellites, which is at individual fire pixels. The product output also include fire detection record in a HMS format, quality flag in biomass burning emissions, spatial pattern of PM2.5 emissions, and statistic PM2.5 information at continental scale. In Version3, daily biomass burning emissions at a FV3 C384 grid in binary format and daily biomass burning emissions at a 0.1 x 0.1 degree grid that include all the emissions species are added as new output. The details of the algorithm used to generate these products can be found from Algorithm Theoretical Basis Document (ATBD).
