source_file: This product is generated from monthly 0.5 degree GFED3.1 burned area observations
title: derived GFED3 burned area fracttion in 0.5x0.5
Approach: I divided the monthly area burned within each grid grid cell, original in units of 0.1 hectares, by the total area in in each land grid cell. Meanwhile, I also masked the ocean region by using GFED3 land-sea mask in 0.5x0.5 degrees. I also set all grid cells in desert areas to missing. The output files were transformed to netcdf format.
Temporal resolution: monthly
General information: This product was derived from GFED3.1 dataset.
Spatial resolution: 0.5x0.5 degree
