Short summary
Landscape fires strongly influence atmospheric chemistry, composition, and climate. Characterizing such fires at very high temporal resolution is best achieved using thermal observations of actively burning fires made from geostationary Earth Observation satellites. Here we detail the Fire Radiative Power (FRP) products generated by the Land Surface Analysis Satellite Applications Facility (LSA SAF) from data collected by the Meteosat geostationary satellites.
