Brief 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.

Notes

Credit
We at TERN acknowledge the Traditional Owners and Custodians throughout Australia, New Zealand and all nations. We honour their profound connections to land, water, biodiversity and culture and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
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.
Data Quality Information

Data Quality Assessment Scope
local : dataset
AVHRR Fire Frequency is derived from manual mapping of fire affected areas using data from AVHRR. It provides the number of times an area has been affected by fire in a given time period (Craig et al, 2002).

Data Quality Assessment Result
local : Quality Result
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.
