Minimize FRP Processing Parameters
Only the SLSTR Level-2 Fire Radiative Power (FRP) test data file is used in the specific SLSTR Level-2 section dedicated to FRP processing. This file contains the FRP test thresholds and other values. During FRP processing, several tests are carried out to identify fire spots and calculate their associated FRP (see dedicated wiki page). Each test is taken into account in this ADF and specific thresholds are provided. The different tests are:
  • solar geometry test
  • water test
  • cloud test
  • sun glint test
  • sub-scene test
  • spectral test
  • spatial test
  • absolute test
  • background test
  • contextual threshold tests
  • desert false alarm tests
  • FRP confidence tests.

One specific container is associated with FRP calculations.


Note: in the frame of coming evolutions, the algorithm will be mainly based on the one implemented in SLSTR Level 2 prototype, the ADF described above should be still present but slightly modified.
