AGU’sEOS Publishes Article Showing the Progression of Wildfire Emissions Monitoring and Forecasting

The American Geophysical Union published Advances in Satellite Data for Wildfire Smoke Forecasting in their EOS publication. The article highlights the use of GOES-16 data “to provide customized smoke modeling products for large wildfire events,” (over 8,000 hectares). However the article acknowledges that, “Modeling smaller fires requires higher spatial resolution data, such as those from the polar-orbiting satellites [Terra and Aqua], which provide snapshot data two to four times per day.”
