             abstract = "Biomass burning is a major factor contributing to land use and 
                         land cover change globally and in particular in South America and 
                         the Amazon region. Space-borne sensors provide valuable 
                         information on active fire detection; however, their application 
                         for quantitative studies of fire activity has been limited due to 
                         variations within and among existing systems. In this study, which 
                         is part of the LBA-Eco Phase III experiment, we developed methods 
                         to allow multi-year analyses of fire dynamics and impacts with a 
                         focus in Amazonia. The proposed research aimed to create a 
                         standardized fire data record for Amazonia derived from multiple 
                         satellite sensors and to apply the resulting data set for the 
                         quantification of fire impacts in the region. Here we present some 
                         of the results from this project including: (i) the analyses of 
                         biomass burning in Amazonia using multi-sensor data (ASTER, ETM+, 
                         MODIS, GOES), (ii) the development of an improved active fire 
                         detection product to run on geostationary imagery providing 
                         additional information to help the interpretation of the fire 
                         data, (iii) the production of a longer term active fire time 
                         series for Amazonia as a result of the reprocessing of 10+ years 
                         of 30-min GOES imager 4km data using the refined fire detection 
                         product algorithm, and (iv) the production of baseline biomass 
                         burning emission estimates for South America using the new fire 
                         data record.",
