NOAA GOES-R Series Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Level 2 Fire/Hot Spot Characterization (FDC)

The Fire (HSC) product contains four images, one in the form of a fire mask, and the other three with pixel values identifying fire temperature, fire area, and fire radiative power. Pixel values in the fire mask image identify a fire category and diagnostic information associated with algorithm execution. The six fire categories include: Good quality or temporally filtered good quality fire pixel; Saturated fire pixel or temporally filtered saturated fire pixel; Cloud contaminated or temporally filtered cloud contaminated fire pixel; High probability or temporally filtered high probability fire pixel; Medium probability or temporally filtered high probability fire pixel; Low probability or temporally filtered high probability fire. Temporally filtered fire pixels are those resulting from fire pixels that are in close proximity in both space and time. The product includes data quality information that provides an assessment of fire detection for on-earth pixels. The units of measure for the Fire (HSC) product quantities are for Mask: dimensionless; for Temperature: kelvin; for Area: square kilometers; for Radiative Power: megawatts. The Fire (HSC) product image is produced on the ABI fixed grid at 2 km resolution for Full Disk and CONUS coverage regions. Product data is produced under the following conditions: Existence of land; Geolocated source data to local zenith angles of 80 degrees, solar zenith angles between 10 and 180 degrees, and sunglint angles greater than 10 degrees.
